Testicle Stem Cells Become Bone, Muscle in German Experiments

The advance, reported today in the journal Nature, may provide an alternative way to generate powerful stem cells that might be used to repair or replace damaged tissue in male patients with hard-to-treat diseases. Currently, scientists create stem cells by extracting them from embryos or genetically manipulating adult cells to make them pluripotent, or able to become many other cell types…
