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.
Because of PrimeCell's unique genetic integrity, conditioned pluripotentiality and the fact that it is derived from a post-natal source, we believe it will be the most therapeutically valuable stem cell available to treat a wide range of degenerative disorders.
