Parenchymal (epithelial or mesenchymal) stem cells are rapidly drawing both scientific and clinical attention in solid organs like the liver, skin, intestine and abdominal mesothelium, just as has been the case in the hematopoietic system. For the stem cells of these organs various definitions, markers for identification, methods of isolation and in vitro cultivation, and lineage mechanisms have been proposed and some of them are now proven to be valid and useful.
