Hematopoietic stem cells are regulated by Cripto, as an intermediary of HIF-1α in the hypoxic bone marrow niche.


Cripto has been known as an embryonic stem (ES)- or tumor-related soluble/cell membrane protein. In this study, we demonstrated that Cripto has a role as an important regulatory factor for hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Recombinant Cripto sustained the reconstitution ability of HSCs in vitro. Flow cytometry analysis uncovered that GRP78, one of the… (More)
