Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are tissue-specific, multipotent stem cells that give rise to all blood cells. They reside in the bone marrow in a low oxygen environment called the “niche”, where they remain quiescent before eventually dividing and differentiating.
B and T lymphocytes, natural killer cells, dendritic cells, monocytes, platelets, and erythrocytes all originate from hematopoietic stem cells through lineage-specific intermediate progenitors. Hematopoietic stem cells have been extensively used in therapy for certain blood disorders and cancers, and are approved for treatment in humans.
HSCs are a rare cell population, with only around 1 in 2,000 to 1 in 10,000 bone marrow cells HSCs. Popular markers to identify this cell type include: Sca-1, CD27, CD34, CD38, CD43, CD48, CD117 and CD150.
