Author(s): Mubeena Khatun*

Multipotent stem cells are a subset of stem cells with the unique ability to differentiate into multiple cell types within a specific lineage. This review article provides a comprehensive overview of the characteristics and therapeutic potential of multipotent stem cells. It discusses their sources, differentiation capabilities, applications in regenerative medicine, and current research trends. Understanding the properties of multipotent stem cells is crucial for harnessing their therapeutic benefits in various medical conditions. Multipotent stem cells possess the ability to differentiate into multiple cell types within a specific lineage, holding great promise for regenerative medicine. Derived from diverse sources such as bone marrow, adipose tissue, and neural tissue, these cells contribute to tissue repair and regeneration in conditions like osteoarthritis and spinal cord injury. Recent advancements in cellular reprogramming and genetic editing techniques have further expanded their therapeutic potential. However, challenges including immune compatibility and optimization of differentiation protocols warrant further investigation. Harnessing the regenerative capabilities of multipotent stem cells offers a transformative approach to addressing various medical conditions.
