Summary of "Muscling in on the Awesome Proliferative Power of the Terrible Teratoma."

In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Chan et al. (2018) report that in vivo differentiation of pluripotent stem cells in induced teratomas produces functional embryonic-like muscle stem cells. These purified muscle stem cells engraft with high efficiency and regenerate serially injured muscle.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Treatment using irradiation with light of low power intensity so that the effects are a response to the light and not due to heat. A variety of light sources, especially low-power lasers are used.

A malignant neoplasm consisting of elements of teratoma with those of embryonal carcinoma or choriocarcinoma, or both. It occurs most often in the testis. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Large vessels propelled by power or sail used for transportation on rivers, seas, oceans, or other navigable waters. Boats are smaller vessels propelled by oars, paddles, sail, or power; they may or may not have a deck.

A true neoplasm composed of a number of different types of tissue, none of which is native to the area in which it occurs. It is composed of tissues that are derived from three germinal layers, the endoderm, mesoderm, and ectoderm. They are classified histologically as mature (benign) or immature (malignant). (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1642)

Cells with high proliferative and self renewal capacities derived from adults.
