Hematopoietic Stem Cells: Hematopoietic Stem Cells are responsible for the production and replenishment of all blood cell types during the entire life of an organism. HSC therapy is the current standard treatment for numerous hematological conditions such as mutiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and sickle cell anemia.
Skin Cells: Skin stem cells are the multipotent adult stem cells that self-renew and differentiate into the layers of the skin. They reside in the basal layer of the epidermis and generate terminally differentiated cells that become the layers of the epidermis. Skin renewal occurs throughout life and during skin injury and repair. Current studies are exploring wound healing, genetic manipulation and patients with skin disorders.
The Blastocoel: Human embryonic stem cells are derived from the inner cell mass of the blastocyst on day five of embryonic development. Human ES cells are pluripotent cells and can differentiate into various cell types in vivo and in vitro. There has been a shift away from using human embryonic stem cells due to ethical issues and replaced with reprogramming somatic cells into pluripotent stem cells, called induced pluripotent stem cells.
Satellite Cells: Satellite Cells are the stem cells of skeletal muscle and play an indispensable role in muscle regeneration. Adult skeletal muscle regeneration is a highly orchestrated process involving the activation of various cellular and molecular responses showing the remarkable ability to repair post injury. Satellite cells are not as applicable in regenerative medicine due to isolation difficulties outside of the body.
Retinal Cells: The retina contains photoreceptor cells, called rods and cones, whose job is to react to light and convert it into electrical signals to send to the brain. The RPE cells are lost in Macular Degeneration, causing death of photoreceptors and a loss of central vision and therefore, blindness. Current treatment of Macular Degeneration looks to use stem cells to replace the retinal cells that die in the hopes of halting further blindness and slow the progression of the disease.
The Astrocyte: Astrocytes help to maintain the optimal environment for neuronal signal transmission. During development, neural stem cells differentiate into neurons and glial cells, such as astrocytes. These stem cells are abundant and can regenerate in the fetal brain but have minimal regeneration capabilities in the adult brain. Neural stem cells have the potential to be used in cell replacement therapy, drug delivery and disease modeling.
