Today we are pleased to release another image to the public domain regarding cell plasticity.
With plasticity we intend the ability of stem cells from a particular tissue to generate different cell types, specific of another tissue.

However, it was found that stem cells can also differentiate into cells typical of different germ layers. For example, the same bone marrow stem cells (derived from the mesoderm) can differentiate into neural tissue which usually derives from the embryonic ectoderm.
