OMING OF hematopoietic progenitors can be defined H as the set of molecular interactions that mediates the recognition of hematopoietic stem cells and other progenitor cells by marrow stroma after the progenitor cells are intravenously introduced into a recipient. Through this recognition mechanism, circulating progenitor cells bind selectively to the marrow stroma and begin the process of proliferation and differentiation. It is owing to the homing mechanism that bone marrow transplantation… CONTINUE READING
