entiation of multipotent cells involves functionally irreversible maturation steps. Included in the progeny of mouse HSCs are two kinds of oligolineage-restricted Introduction cells: common lymphocyte progenitors (CLPs), which at Stem cells are not only units of biological organization, a clonal level are restricted to give rise to T lymphocytes, responsible for the development and the regeneration B lymphocytes, and natural killer (NK) cells (Kondo et of tissue and organ systems, but also are… Expand

Figures from this paper

Molecular switches and developmental potential of adult stem cells.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the helix-loop-helix (HLH) transcription factor Id2 (inhibitor of DNA binding/differentiation 2) acts as a molecular switch in development of Langerhans cells (LCs), the cutaneous contingent of dendritic cells (DCs), and of specific DC subsets and B cells. Expand
Asymmetric Division and Lineage Commitment at the Level of Hematopoietic Stem Cells
TLDR
Comparison of differentiation potentials between individual pairs of daughter and granddaughter cells derived in vitro from single nmEM cells strongly suggest that lineage commitment takes place asymmetrically at the level of HSCs under the influence of external factors. Expand
Stem and progenitor cells: origins, phenotypes, lineage commitments, and transdifferentiations.
TLDR
This review is about the properties of various highly purified tissue-specific multipotent stem cells and purified oligolineage progenitors and contends that unless the stem or progenitor cells in question have been purified to near homogeneity, one cannot know whether their generation of expected or unexpected progeny is a property of a known cell type.

TISSUE-SPECIFIC STEM CELLS Maintenance of Undifferentiated State and Self-Renewal of Embryonic Neural Stem Cells by Polycomb Protein Ring 1 B
Cell lineages generated during development and tissue maintenance are derived from self-renewing stem cells by differentiation of their committed progeny. Recent studies suggest that epigeneticExpand

TLDR
Upon transplantation into brains of immunodeficient neonatal mice, the sorted/expanded hCNS-SC showed potent engraftment, proliferation, migration, and neural differentiation. Expand
Definitions and criteria for stem cells.

  • 2008
TLDR
The complexity of NSCs, neural patterning, and the formation of multiple populations of neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocyte warrant the need for intense studies to characterize these cells and to define the microenvironment that will be needed to support them in the diseased CNS. Expand
Adult stem cell plasticity
TLDR
Some of the evidence for stem cell plasticity in rodents and man is reviewed, finding that appropriately differentiated cells are delivered deep within organs simply by injection of bone marrow cells, and should make us think differently about the way that organs regenerate and repair. Expand
Cell Cycle Regulation in Human Hematopoietic Stem Cells: From Isolation to Activation
TLDR
The dynamics that regulate which and how many cells self-renew to maintain the pool, and which proliferate and become committed to give rise to the mature blood elements, are still unclear. Expand
Multipotent Stem Cells in the Adult Central Nervous System
TLDR
Questions have been raised regarding the existence and location of true stem cells in the CNS, which may be able to sustain adult neurogenesis continuously and may even provide an endogenous source of new neural Cells in the course of reparative processes. Expand
Multilineage Differentiation from Human Embryonic Stem Cell Lines
TLDR
Because they have the dual ability to proliferate indefinitely and differentiate into multiple tissue types, human ES cells could potentially provide an unlimited supply of tissue for human transplantation. Expand

We have used retrovirus-mediated gene transfer to mark hematopoietic stem cells in vitro and have tracked the fate of these cells after their transplantation into lethally irradiated recipients.Expand
Clonal analysis of hematopoietic stem-cell differentiation in vivo.
TLDR
While the majority of Thy-1loLin-Sca-1+ bone marrow cells whose progeny are detected in the in vivo repopulation assay are pluripotential, only a subset undergo long-term self-renewal in vivo, bringing into question the notion that steady-state hematopoiesis in normal individuals is oligoclonal.

Stem Cells A New Lease on Life
TLDR
The fabulous ability of an embryo to diversify and of sifting through the galaxy of environmental signals to certain adult tissues to regenerate throughout life is a determine which constellations of cues can selectively direct result of stem cells, nature’s gift to multicellular coax ES cells down a specific cell lineage pathway at organisms.

Identification of Clonogenic Common Lymphoid Progenitors in Mouse Bone Marrow
TLDR
The Lin(-)IL-7R(+)Thy-1(-)Sca-1loc-Kit(lo) population from adult mouse bone marrow possessed a rapid lymphoid-restricted (T, B, and NK) reconstitution capacity in vivo but completely lacked myeloid differentiation potential either in vivo or in vitro. Expand
Intrinsic and Extrinsic Control of Hemopoietic Stem Cell Numbers: Mapping of a Stem Cell Gene
TLDR
The findings indicate that a gene mapping to this region is mutated in either C57BL/6 or DBA/2 (and possibly AKR) mice, which may facilitate the identification of a gene implicated in human 5q-syndromes. Expand
The Role of Apoptosis in the Regulation of Hematopoietic Stem Cells
TLDR
A transgenic mouse model that overexpresses BCL-2 in all hematopoietic cells, including HSC, is employed, showing that cells from H2K-BCL-2 mice have an increased plating efficiency in vitro, engraft at least as well as wild-type HSC in vivo, and have an advantage following competitive reconstitution with wild- type HSC. Expand
The long-term repopulating subset of hematopoietic stem cells is deterministic and isolatable by phenotype.
TLDR
The ability to predict the longevity of reconstitutes based on lineage marker expression indicates that reconstitution potential is deterministic, not stochastic. Expand
Identification of a lineage of multipotent hematopoietic progenitors.
TLDR
This study shows that the same populations, with similar functional activities, exist in mice whose hematopoietic systems were reconstituted by hematopolietic stem cells after lethal irradiation, and demonstrates that these populations form a lineage of multipotent progenitors from long-term self-renewing stem cells to the most mature multip powerless progenitor population.

Self-renewal, differentiation or death: regulation and manipulation of hematopoietic stem cell fate.
TLDR
This review focuses on recent approaches towards understanding how the HSC compartment is regulated in vivo and discusses how this knowledge might be applied to manipulating HSC numbers. Expand
Isolation of a candidate human hematopoietic stem-cell population.
TLDR
By extrapolation, the rare human Thy-1+Lin-CD34+ cell population contains pluripotent hematopoietic progenitors; it is proposed that it is highly enriched for candidate hematopolietic stem cells. Expand
