While generating induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) may have caused researchers some stress over the years, a new finding suggests that putting some stress on their cells instead could make their lives surprisingly easier. It turns out that external stressors like physical damage or low pH can lead a cell to have stem cell properties including pluripotency, making the process of cellular reprogramming faster and more efficient than ever before.
