Abstract. Multipotent Adult Progenitor cells (MAPC) are rare progenitor cells present within the bone marrow that have the capacity to differentiate into.
A progenitor cell is a biological cell that, like a stem cell, has a tendency to differentiate into a Many properties are shared by adult stem cells and progenitor cells. Progenitor cells are found in adult organisms and they act as a repair system.
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the body after development, that multiply by cell division to replenish dying cells and regenerate .
