Any body cell other than gametes (egg or sperm); sometimes referred to as "adult" cells.
Somatic Cell Nucleus Transfer:
Pluripotent cells created by nuclear transfer, a form of cloning, can prompt immune reaction, UKE researchers find in a joint project with UK and US scientists.
Stem cells are classified into the following categories: totipotent stem cells, pluripotent stem cells, multipotent stem cells and unipotent stem cells.

Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF):
Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) is the product of lipoaspirate which is obtained from liposuction of excess adipose tissue. The lipoaspirate, a disposable byproduct of liposuction (cosmetic surgery), contains a large population of stem cells called adipose derived stem cells, that shares a number of similarities with the bone marrow stromal cells, including the multilineage differentiation capacity.
