Transcript of Matthew/Michelle Stem Cell

The stem cell functions as a "morphing machine" that can change into various types of different things that are in your body, such as cartilage, bone, brain cell, and occasionally, the muscle. In body tissue, the stem cell can serve as a repair guide to help regenerate what has been lost or broken. They will only do this, until the animal or human dies.

Stem Cell Introduction
Why are they so important?
The stem cell will provide an uprising structure that will give the muscles, heart, lungs, and other tissue in the body more of a pop. They can also regenerate into something important that you may have lost and desperately need. With this one of a kind skill to transform into something else, they can be used to help cure heart disease, and quite possibly diabetes. Yet still, much work remains in the laboratories to develop the right formula.
The stem cell, is a very special type of cell. It is in only humans and animals. It provides a needed regenerative power, that can change into any other tissue or muscle! This amazing cell has much more to it. Come join us, on this educational adventure throughout the stem cell.
In the stem cell family, there are four types. The embryonic stem cell, tissue stem cell, hematopeic stem cells, and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells). All of their lifespans are until the human or animal dies. The embryonic stem cell is a cell taken from an embryo. The pluripotent stem cell, is a type of cell that has been genetically re-formed into an embryonic cell. The hematopaic stem cells create blood cells if they have been lost. And the tissue stem cell, which is a cell that was taken from the adult fetal tissue.
Most Well Known Stem Cell
With the one of a kind skill to transform into something else important, stem cells can be used to help cure heart disease, and quite possibly diabetes.

This extrodinary cell can expand our lifespan, to up to 200 years! Studies proved, when injecting younger stem cells from younger mice into older mice , has expand there lifespan from 21 days, to 71 days. With us, this could be expanded up to 200 years! Studies still continue.

Science Fiction? This is where it all begins. Stem cells, (especially the embryonic ones) have been used in multiple studies/experiments, for cloning! Two types: one for reproductive systems, and the other for creating more embryonic cells. Scientists are still working on it though! An experiment is never done, until you go beyond your standards and excel further.
The most well known stem cell, has to be the embryonic. It is the one that has been most studied and explored. It is also the one that has been used in the most experiments, counting the ones that involve regeneration skills!
All of these can be found in any type of tissue!
Where Can I Find These Stem Cells?
The main question. Where can you find them? They can be found in any type of body tissue. To simplify it, body tissue such as muscles, skin, liver, nerves, etc. There are many more, and those are just a few examples, to give you the right idea!
The idea of how many muscles there are. Now imagine all those stem cells!
Speed Fact
Stem cells are one of a kind, and not just because of their special power. They don't contain a specific DNA! Because they can change into everything else with DNA, it would have to have no specific DNA to perform this!
When Did the Studies of the Stem Cell begin?
What Would Happen If We Didn't Have Stem Cells?
If you did not have a stem cell you would not grow. You need them because they are like the master cell of the body.
The first studies began in the mid 1800's, when people first started to discover that there are more cell types, such as the ones that can regenerate into something else. Science on it began with various experiments, that are beyond imagination, and frequently used in science fiction movies.
