HEMOSTASIS, THROMBOSIS, AND VASCULAR BIOLOGY Sulfated glycans induce rapid hematopoietic progenitor cell mobilization: evidence for selectin-dependent and independent mechanisms


The adhesive mechanisms leading to the mobilization of hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) from the bone marrow into the blood are poorly understood. We report on a role for selectins and fucoidan in progenitor mobilization. Baseline levels of circulating HPCs are increased in endothelial selectin-deficient (P/E2/2) mice. Similar levels are observed when… (More)
