Cloning Animal Cells
The word “clone” is used to describe a cell population that has derived from a single cell. Such single cells are termed “clonogenic” and only a small proportion of normal cells and probably a higher proportion of tumor cells have the proliferative capabilities required to give rise to clones. Both normal and neoplastic stem cells may be considered clonogenic as they have the ability to renew themselves and produce descendants which differentiate.
