However, nonstem cells have been also used for therapeutic purposes, such as autologous or heterologous myoblasts.
However, recent studies have found that the differentiation of cancer stem cells into nonstem tumor cells (non-CSCs) may not always be a one-way, irreversible process as previously recognized; instead, the cancer stem cell phenotype has plasticity, and some differentiated tumor cells can be transformed from a nonstem cell state to a stem cell state and noncancer stem cell subpopulation cells can also be transformed into cancer stem cells [59, 60].
Intriguingly, observations of the modification of mitochondrial patterning in a spontaneously differentiating rhesus monkey adult mesenchymal cell (MSC) line (ATSC line) have demonstrated heterogeneity within stem cell populations and have led to the postulation that mitochondrial localization (deviation from a perinuclear region) may be a mechanism by which to monitor differentiation status, in vitro [28], although this remains to be firmly established, and applicability may be cell type- and status-dependent, as perinuclear localization can be induced in disease states and under conditions of hypoxia and apoptosis in nonstem cell lines [29-31].
