Adult bone marrow is a rich reservoir of hematopoietic and mesenchymal stem and progenitor cells. Mobilization and recruitment of bone marrow-derived cells to injured or ischemic tissue or tumors endorse the initiation and maintenance of angiogenic processes in the adult by incorporating endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) into the developing vasculature and by recruiting accessory hematopoietic cells. Recent data have now revealed that the origin of bone marrow-derived vascular cells is not… CONTINUE READING
