These cells are capable of renewing themselves and produce uncountable generations of new cells with their specific abilities to characterize into a specific cell type. By use of stem cell, a damage area of the body can be repaired.

Stem cells have unique potential to develop into almost any cell types. The embryonic stem cells exist at the earliest stage of growth and development of life and different types of ‘tissue-specific’ or adult stem cells appear during fetal development and stays throughout our life in our bodies.
