Reprogramming = Dedifferentiation - the process of converting somatic cell back in to pluripotent stems.
Regression of a specialized cell or tissue to a simpler, more embryonic, unspecialized form. Dedifferentiation may occur before the regeneration of appendages in plants and certain animals and in the development of some cancers
Induced pluripotent stem cells-type of pluripotent stem cell artificially derived from a non-pluripotent cell - typically an adult somatic cell - by inducing a "forced" expression of specific genes.
