Stem cells have the capacity to self-renew while retaining the ability to differentiate into at least one, but usually multiple, different cell types. Clearly a specific pattern of gene expression is required to maintain the stem cell in a proliferating but undifferentiated state.

Stem cells and progenitors are also unique in that they are able to initiate distinctly different programs of gene expression as they differentiate into different cell types. Stem cells of all types have attracted considerable interest in recent years and a great deal of emphasis has been placed on their potential to provide new treatments, particularly in the area of regenerative medicine. All existing stem cell therapies, as well as future therapies, depend on stem cells expressing the required pattern of genes at the correct time.
