Characterization, regulation, and targeting of erythroid progenitors in normal and disordered human erythropoiesis.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW The erythroid progenitors burst-forming unit-erythroid and colony-forming unit-erythroid have a critical role in erythropoiesis. These cells represent a heterogeneous and poorly characterized population with modifiable self-renewal, proliferation and differentiation capabilities. This review focuses on the current state of erythroid… CONTINUE READING
