Animals with hereditary abnormalities of hematopoiesis are quite useful in the study of regulatory pathways of megakaryocytopoiesis and platelet formation. Seven such animal models are analyzed here. The Wistar Furth rat has been recently discovered to have reduced platelet number, but large mean platelet volume, and is, therefore, a model of hereditary… CONTINUE READING
