Stem Cell Division

Stem cells are a type of cell that has the ability to divide and renew themselves for long periods. They are found in most tissues of the body and can give rise to specialized cells. Stem cells divide in one of two ways: symmetrically or asymmetrically. Symmetrical division results in two daughter cells that are…
