What Is Long Term Self Renewal



Scientists are trying to understand two essential properties of stem cells:
why can embryonic stem cells proliferate for a year or more in the laboratory without differentiating, but most non-embryonic stem cells cannot; and
what are the factors in living organisms that normally regulate stem cell proliferation and self-renewal?
Discovering the answers to these questions may make it possible to understand how cell proliferation is regulated during normal embryonic development or during the abnormal cell division that leads to cancer. This information will also help scientists grow embryonic and non-embryonic stem cells more efficiently in the laboratory.
