Recent studies demonstrate that inflammatory signals regulate hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is often induced with infection and has a key role in the stress granulopoiesis response. However, its effects on HSCs are less clear. Herein, we show that treatment with G-CSF induces expansion and increased(More)
Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) is a member of the TLR family of receptors that play a central role in innate immunity. In addition to regulating effector immune cells, where it recognizes a wide variety of pathogen-associated and nonpathogen-associated endogenous ligands, TLR2 is expressed in hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Its role in HSCs, however, is not(More)
