Stem cells found in human fat transformed into smooth muscle cells

The debunked myth of not being able to transform fat tissue into muscle, strikes back (with the help of science). Science Blog writes:

“Researchers […] today announced they have transformed adult stem cells taken from human adipose – or fat tissue – into smooth muscle cells, which help the normal function of a multitude of organs like the intestine, bladder and arteries. The study may help lead to the use of fat stem cells for smooth muscle tissue engineering and repair.”
