Since a series of papers heralded the finding of surprising plasticity in a variety of adult stem cells [1, 2], this exciting field has generated almost.

The dogma that adult tissue-specific stem cells remain committed to supporting only their own tissue has been challenged; a new hypothesis, that adult stem.
Yet studies proposing such “plasticity” of adult somatic stem cells remain controversial, and in general, existing evidence suggests that in vivo such unexpected.
