Blood clots can provide a matrix for fibrous ingrowth and pluripotential cell migration into the area, which could lead to development of bone and dense fibrotic tissues (27).
1) Like their embryonic counterparts, these induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) were capable of forming all three germ layers both in vitro and in immuno-deficient mice, demonstrating their remarkable pluripotential character.
This might indicate that basal cells of PIN correspond to cells in a stage of transient proliferation (with features of pluripotential cells), when these cells reach the luminal compartment their nuclear size decreases while maintaining their potential for proliferation (Tsuji et al.

The precursor mesenchymal or stromal stem cell for osteoblasts is pluripotential and can also differentiate into adipocytes or marrow support cells, and possibly, into fibroblasts, muscle cells, or cartilage cells.
