Overview

This comprehensive review of our current understanding of adult stem cell types and their regulation examines the derivation, characterization, and utility of adult stem cells found in skeletal muscle, dental pulp, prostate, kidney, the eye, inner ear, and other tissues. The authors pay special attention to adult stem cell plasticity and their utility in normal tissue homeostasis, as well as their applications in regenerative medicine.
