b) adherent cells
c) adult Stem cells
d) carcinoma cells

Some have suggested that undifferentiated organisms are by one way or another put aside during fetal improvement and controlled from separating.

5. Adult stem cells are rare.
a) TRUE
b) FALSE
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Grown-up undeveloped cells are uncommon. Their essential capacities are to keep up the enduring state working of a phone—called homeostasis—and, with impediments, to supplant cells that kick the bucket in light of damage or malady. For instance, just an expected 1 of every 10,000 to 15,000 cells in the bone marrow is a hematopoietic (blood-shaping) stem cells (HSC).
