Quantitative assay for totipotent reconstituting hematopoietic stem cells by a competitive repopulation strategy.

Although hematopoiesis is known to originate in a population of very primitive cells with both lymphopoietic and myelopoietic potential, a procedure for enumerating such cells has to date not been available. We now describe a quantitative assay for long-term repopulating stem cells with the potential for reconstituting all hematopoietic lineages. This assay… CONTINUE READING
