Hemangiopoietin, a novel human growth factor for the primitive cells of both hematopoietic and endothelial cell lineages.

Abstract

The cells of hematopoietic and vascular endothelial cell lineages are believed to share a common precursor, termed hemangioblast. However, the existence of a growth factor acting relatively specifically on hemangioblasts remains unclear. Here we report the identification of hemangiopoietin (HAPO), a novel growth factor acting on both hematopoietic and… (More)
