    Dear my friend: You don’t have to be so upset about all stem cell research and treatments. In fact, the belief that stem cells come from aborted fetuses is a misconception. I will clarify this misconception for you. I will begin by explaining the basic stem cell biology. There are two big categorized cells, stem cells and specialized cells. Our bodies contain many types of specialized cells, and each type of specialized cells functions for different purposes. Examples include eye cells, heart…

    second cleavage stage into four equal blastomeres; this is also known as holoblastic cleavage. Although, if the egg is macrolecithal then it will undergo meroblastic cleavage, in which the embryo can divide in a restricted space that is yolk-free in the cytoplasm (small dic area). Within the cleavage stage of the embryo it is radial and indeterminate meaning that…

    In the days after conception, the fertilized egg begins to form a mass of cells called a blastocyst. It is from this mass of cells that all of the human body originates from. The nuclei of all of the cells in the blastocyst contain genes that turn some cells into bone cells and others into skin cells. The cells found in the inner mass of the blastocyst are called embryonic stem cells and have the potential to differentiate into almost all other cells in the body; the pluripotency of these cells…
