12. General Term: EG Cells
EG Cells Embryonic germ cells . These cells are found in a specific part of the embryo/fetus called the gonadal ridge, and normally develop into mature gametes . Related Topics: Genetics

15. Stem Cell Topic: Current Status of Human Stem Cell Research
Totipotent stem cells are cells that can give rise to a fully functional organism as well as to every cell type of the body. Pluripotent stem cells are capable of giving rise to virtually any tissue type, but not to a functioning

16. Stem Cell Topic: Funding
the potential of human stem cells from these various sources. Embryonic stem cells (ES cells ) derived from early embryos and embryonic germ cells (EG cells) have particular promise for a wide range of therapeutic applications because they are

17. Stem Cell Topic: Spiritual and Religious Contexts
those involving the use of cells obtained from embryos (ES cells), or from deliberately aborted fetuses (EG cells). The fact that much basic research needs to be done in the area of human embryonic development suggests that both ES and EG cells

18. Stem Cell Topic: What are the New Discoveries?
out the individual cells, and placed them on a feeder tray. The cells divided. They reproduced themselves. Because these cells are as yet undifferentiated--that is, they are pluripotent and able to make any part of a human body--they are

19. Stem Cell Topic: Preface
the discovery of human stem cells (precursor cells that can give rise to multiple tissue types), including embryonic stem (ES) cells, embryonic germ (EG) cells, and adult stem cells. Recently, techniques have been developed for the in vitro

20. Stem Cell Topic: Question: is There a Potential Baby in Every Body Cell?
as the source. Somatic cells might become the source for pluripotent cells. Then we would experience a shift in ethical ground tantamount to an earthquake. Initially and naively, we could breathe a sigh of relief. If
