OBJECTIVE Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) reside in both bone marrow (BM) and spleen in adult mice. However, whether BM and spleen HSCs are functionally similar is not known. Spleen HSCs were compared with BM HSCs by various assays. MATERIALS AND METHODS Whole BM and spleen cells were quantitatively analyzed by competitive repopulation. Single-cell(More)
A 36-year-old man was admitted because of numbness and muscle weakness in the lower extremities. He had gait disturbance, malaise, and body weight loss. Based on the existence of monoclonal gammopathy, the proliferation of abnormal plasma cells in the bone marrow, the presence of sclerotic bone lesion, polycythemia, mild splenomegaly, and an elevated level(More)
Hematopoietic cell transplantation has proven beneficial for various intractable diseases, but it remains unclear how hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs) home to the bone marrow (BM) microenvironment, initiate hematopoietic reconstitution, and maintain life-long hematopoiesis. The use of newly elucidated molecular determinants for overall HSPC(More)
Hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) transplantation (HSCT) for malignancy requires toxic pre-conditioning to maximize anti-tumor effects and donor-HSC engraftment. While this induces bone marrow (BM)-localized inflammation, how this BM environmental change affects transplanted HSCs in vivo remains largely unknown. We here report that, depending on interval(More)
