Tissue Regeneration with Replicating Stem-like Cells

A new STEM CELLS Translational Medicine study from the lab of Alan R. Davis (Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA) reports on the application of RNA sequencing to identify a highly replicating stem‐like cell (RSC) that initiates heterotopic bone formation. Mejia et al. demonstrate that RSCs can replicate and differentiate both in vitro and in vivo, and so may represent a candidate for bone tissue engineering.
