New insight into blood production

"Scientists say they have identified a family of multipotent progenitor (MPP) cells that are the first to arise from hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs).

The team said their discovery, published in Cell Stem Cell, raises the possibility that, by manipulating the fates of MPPs or HSCs, researchers could one day help overcome imbalances and deficiencies that can arise in the blood system due to aging or leukemia."
