A nucleus from an adult cell can be put into an embryonic stem cell to create
a therapeutic cell line which will not risk rejection by the recipient. To
avoid the ethical problems associated with embryonic cells, why can't that
same nucleus be placed in a stem cell from an established cell line culture?
