The article offers information on two studies related to hematopoietic stem cell development and transplantation in human body. It states that hematopoietic stem cells are widely studied stem cells and have been deployed for many therapeutic researches. It further highlights the differences between bone marrow-derived and embryonic stem cells (ESCs).

    We postulated that Oct4+SSEA-1+Sca-1+Lin−CD45− very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSELs) isolated from adult bone marrow (BM) could be a reserve population for tissue-committed stem cells. The aim of this study was to elucidate the developmental origin of these cells. We report...

    Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) sustain blood production throughout life. HSCs are capable of extensive proliferative expansion, as a single HSC may reconstitute lethally irradiated hosts. In steady-state, HSCs remain largely quiescent and self-renew at a constant low rate, forestalling their...

    Plerixafor is a novel kind of drug which administration leads to a hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSC) mobilization independently of chemotherapy or G-CSF. Plerixafor is a small molecule bicyclam derivate and inhibits reversibly the SDF-1/CXCR4 interaction, which belongs to the most...

    Pluripotent stem cells, both embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells, are undifferentiated cells that can self-renew and potentially differentiate into all hematopoietic lineages, such as hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), hematopoietic progenitor cells and mature hematopoietic...

    Understanding how embryonic stem cells and their derivatives interact with the adult host immune system is critical to developing their therapeutic potential. Murine embryonic stem cell-derived hematopoietic progenitors (ESHPs) were generated via coculture with the bone marrow stromal cell line,...

    Despite its specific clinical relevance, the field of hematopoietic stem cell mobilization has received broad attention, owing mainly to the belief that pharmacologic stem cell mobilization might provide clues as to how stem cells are retained in their natural environment, the bone marrow...

    Although haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are commonly assumed to reside within a specialized microenvironment, or niche, most published experimental manipulations of the HSC niche have affected the function of diverse restricted progenitors. This raises the fundamental question of whether HSCs...

    Hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) reside in the bone marrow. Stress signals from cancer and other conditions promote HSPC mobilization into circulation and subsequent homing to tissue microenvironments. HSPC infiltration into tissue microenvironments can influence disease...

    Intensive research of hematopoiesis using human embryonic stem cells (hESC) as a unique starting cell population has enabled differentiation and isolation of diverse hematopoietic cell lineages. However, there has been only limited success in derivation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) capable...
