Fibrocytes constitute a unique population of mesenchymal progenitor cells from hematopoietic origin. They display a unique spectrum of immune and molecular characteristics such as the simultaneous expression of mesenchymal (collagen types I and III, fibronectin), leukocyte (CD45), monocyte (CD14), and hematopoietic stem cell (CD34) markers. Fibrocytes were… CONTINUE READING
