--Just being consistent with the definitions posted at Wikipedia, I think you are trying to use "differentiate" in place of several other terms.--

Wikipedia:

Stem cells are primal cells that retain the ability to renew themselves through cell division and can differentiate into a wide range of specialized cell types.
...
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells found throughout the body that divide to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues.

Alas, adult stem cells already come in a variety of forms ~ which is the usage I applied to the situation. Wikipedia's definition seems to be leading you to believe that embryonic and adult stem cells are identical in form and nature.

They are not.
