Traffic lights on early embryo development help understand cell pluripotency

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticleOther

Abstract

A human being is made of many different cell types, ranging from hair cells to those which make up our complex immune system. All the different cell types arise from unspecialised pluripotent cells, which hold the potential to become any type of cell in the adult body.
Dr Jennifer Zenker is a group leader at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University, where her group uses new imaging methods in a live embryo to reveal cellular structures and the basis of what makes cells pluripotent.
