Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, said they have discovered fat can be a source of stem cells that appear to be pluripotent. They have been named multilineage-differentiating stress-enduring, or MUSE, cells. The study, published in the journal PLOS One, said the cells appear to be more like embryonic stem cells than adult stem cells. The discovery may allow the use of fat from liposuction as a source for MUSE cells.
