Hyaluronan stimulates mobilization of mature hematopoietic cells but not hematopoietic progenitors.

Abstract

Hyaluronan (HA) is expressed by cells in bone marrow where it contributes to the regulation of hematopoietic homeostasis. In this study, we have demonstrated that exogenous low molecular weight HA (LMW HA) polymers mobilize leukocytes, but not hematopoietic progenitor cells, to peripheral blood within a 3 hour time period following HA administration… (More)
