 [u-nip´o-tent] (unipotential [u″nĭ-po-ten´shal]) having only one power, as giving rise to cells of one order only.


Referring to those cells that produce a single type of daughter cell; for example, a unipotent stem cell. Compare: pluripotent cells.


Capable of developing into only one type of cell or tissue.

One advantage of our method is that it works in situations where the idea of a basic subset of roots does not make sense, such as the case of the unipotent radical of a parabolic subgroup.
of Oregon) acknowledge that much has already been written about the theory of unipotent elements in simple algebraic groups over algebraically closed or finite fields, and nilpoint elements in the corresponding simple Lie algebras.
If H(L) is a CIPQ(CIPL) then, L is a flexible unipotent CIPQ(flexible CIPL of exponent 2).
25) Embryonic and fetal stem cells typically are pluripotent and offer the greatest research potential, whereas stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood or adult tissues are primarily multipotent or unipotent.

It may be interesting to investigate the combinatorial properties of X, particularly as paths in X are equivalent to set partitions, and they are known to play a crucial role in the supercharacter theory of unipotent upper-triangular matrices (see Thiem (2010) for example).
