    2. 2. Stem Cells Research Fetal Fix: Stem Cell Research and Moral Conflict
    3. 4. Properties of Stem Cell <ul><li>Self-renewal - the ability to go through numerous cycles of cell division while maintaining the undifferentiated state. </li></ul><ul><li>Potency - the capacity to differentiate into specialized cell types. </li></ul>
    4. 5. Potency <ul><li>Totipotent- cell that have the potency to become any kind of body cell. </li></ul><ul><li>Pluripotent- cell that have the capacity to become into nearly all cell but not all. </li></ul><ul><li>Mutipotent- stem cells can differentiate into a number of cells, but only those of a closely related family of cells. </li></ul><ul><li>Oligopotent- stem cells can differentiate into only a few cells, such as lymphoid or myeloid stem cells. </li></ul><ul><li>Unipotent- stem cells can produce only one cell type, their own, but have the property of self-renewal which distinguishes them from non-stem cells (e.g. muscle stem cells). </li></ul>

    11. 13. The stem cells used in this patient came from a fetus. Is obtaining stem cells from a fetus less ethical than obtaining stem cells from a blastocyst? <ul><li>Yes </li></ul><ul><li>No </li></ul>
