Term Information [More information on stem cell population maintenance]

Accession
GO:0019827
Name
stem cell population maintenance
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
maintenance of pluripotency
Definition
The process by which an organism or tissue maintains a population of stem cells of a single type. This can be achieved by a number of mechanisms: stem cell asymmetric division maintains stem cell numbers; stem cell symmetric division increases them; maintenance of a stem cell niche maintains the conditions for commitment to the stem cell fate for some types of stem cell; stem cells may arise de novo from other cell types.
