Totipotent stem cells articles from across Nature Portfolio

Totipotent stem cells are cells that have the capacity to self-renew by dividing and to develop into the three primary germ cell layers of the early embryo and into extra-embryonic tissues such as the placenta. A fertilised egg is a totipotent stem cell and as such can develop into any specialised cell found in the organism.
