How To Control Somatic Cell Counts - A Guide to Mastitis
As the origin of multicellular organisms, pluripotent stem cells can differentiate into all the cell types of the body. These cells can replicate indefinitely in culture and, therefore, are considered immortal. The gold standard of pluripotency is the embryonic stem cell (ESC). Somatic cells ...

New research now shows this wasn’t the case.
