The ability to convert one cell type into another has caused great excitement in the stem cell field. iPS Reprogramming and transdifferentiation are the two approaches which makes cells in to another type of cells. In iPS procedure, it make possible to convert essentially any cell type in the body back into pluripotent stem cells that are almost identical to embryonic stem cells. And another approach uses transcription factors to convert a given cell type directly into another specialized cell type, without first forcing the cells to go back to a pluripotent state.
