Stem cells are those that can differentiate into other functionally varied cell types, such as nerve, muscle, bone, and skin cells. Stem cells represent various temporal and spatial stages in organismal development, and therefore their capacity to differentiate into other cells is variable. Embryonic stem cells are those that are isolated from a very early embryonic development, theblastocyst stage. Such cells retain the capacity to form all tissue types of an organism. Adult stem cells are those isolated from different tissues once such tissues have definitively formed, including any adult stage. Such cells have different capacities to differentiate into other celltypes, but no capacity to form all tissue types that make an organism.
