The concept of “cell plasticity” refers to the capacity of a cell to adopt different identities without any genetic mutations.

It is now appreciated that cell plasticity also plays an important role in adult tissues, particularly in the context of injury and regeneration, where it is indispensable for tissue repair. read more
