Self-renewal and differential ability make stem cells as probable tools for regeneration, repair or replacement therapies in a diversity of disease conditions. Furthermore, due to its plasticity and tropism to gather in diverse lesions, stem cells can be used as a tool to carry therapeutic gene for repair or regeneration of affected tissues. Contingent of their sources, stem cells are broadly characterized into embryonic stem cells (ESCs) i.e. cells derived from the inner cell mass of the blastocyst, and adult stem cells i.e. cells isolated from the adult bone marrow, peripheral blood or from specific organs.
Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
