Researchers Discover Key to Human Embryonic Stem-Cell Potential

Now, researchers at Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research working with human embryonic stem cells have uncovered the process responsible for the single-most tantalizing characteristic of these cells: their ability to become just about any type of cell in the body, a trait known as pluripotency.

It may help us as well to take multipotent cells and make them pluirpotent again, bypassing the embryo and the controversy.
