With the potential for self-renewal and differentiation, the possibilities for stem cells are enormous. One specific type of stem cell, the hematopoietic stem cell (HSC), which is derived from umbilical cord blood (as well as adult bone marrow and mobilized peripheral blood), holds particular promise.
What is a Hematopoietic Stem Cell?
A hematopoietic stem cell is a cell isolated from the blood or bone marrow that can renew itself, can differentiate to a variety of specialized cells, can mobilize out of the bone marrow into circulating blood, and can undergo programmed cell death, called apoptosis—a process by which cells that are detrimental or unneeded self-destruct.
