embryonic stem cells are undifferentiated/unspecialised (until the eight cell stage in humans), which means they are able to divide to produce ant type of specialised cell.
Unspecialised cells have all their genes switched on, however when they become specialised, the genes that are not required are switched off. Only the genes needed to make a particular type of cell work are switched on.
