Embryonic stem cells
Embryonic stem cells are pluripotent cells isolated from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst, the early mammalian embryo that implants into the uterus. Embryonic stem cells self-renew by dividing and can differentiate into any specialised cell of the body, but not extra-embryonic tissues such as the placenta.
