To date, only reprogramming in brain cells that were already fully developed or which had only a limited ability to divide was possible. The new reprogramming method, developed by the Bonn scientists, now enables cells extracted from conventional body cells to be converted into brain stem cells that are still immature and able to undergo practically unlimited division. These results have been published in the journal Cell Stem Cell.
