OBJECTIVE The aims of this study are to test the ability of stromal cells from murine spleen to support hematopoiesis, to define the tissue source of precursors that seed these hematopoietic niches, and to determine the type of cells produced. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cloned isolates of murine spleen stroma have been developed that support hematopoiesis… CONTINUE READING
