Term Definition
Embryonic stem (ES) cells
ES cells are self-renewing cells isolated from the vertebrate inner cell mass of a developing embryo. As ES cells are totipotent they are capable of differentiating into any somatic cell or tissue but they also preserve their capability to remain within the developmental pathway of germ cells. Thus, they are part of the germline.
