pluripotentiality

The ability of stem cells to differentiate into almost all cells that arise from the three germ layers but not to form placenta or supporting structures. See also UNIPOTENTIALITY.

These anti-statists may refuse to define the cultural content of libertopia because they believe deeply in the pluripotentiality of freedom--that freedom can mean the freedom to be a Mormon housewife as well as to be a postgendered television personality.
They grow fast, as fast as embryonic stem cells, and they show great pluripotentiality [meaning they can become many kinds of tissues]," said Atala.
In spite of the optimism generated by the recent research reports on the pluripotentiality of human somatic stem cells, many scientists support the continuation of human embryonic stem cell research.
4) One could theoretically harvest the cells of the morula prior to blastocyst formation; each of these thirty-two cells is capable of producing both placental and embryonic tissue and therefore has totipotentiality while the inner cell mass of a later embryo has pluripotentiality.
There is also functional pluripotentiality, that is, no node within the system is responsible for only a single function, and any node can assume a (limited) variety of roles as situation and task demand.
Vitro's new technology involves elevated expression of a single gene called, POU5-F1, which is considered a master regulatory element or gatekeeper of pluripotentiality.
