I havenīt posted for some time. I guess that is why my nick was cancelled. Anyways I created a new one. Lol
My question is regarding stem cells:
What is the difference between 'self-renewal' and 'proliferation'?
Is it possible to distinguish experimentaly self-renewal and proliferation? The assays that are performed in the literature (spheres cultures, serial passages of cells in animals) prove that cells have proliferation ability or self-renewal?
