The brief history of phenotype dissection of hematopoietic stem cells


I’m planning to give more educational information in different formats. I’d like to hear your opinion about what kind of info you want to see here and maybe suggest some resources.

Today is stem cell basics – historical overview of phenotype dissection of hematopoietic stem cells.

criteria of enrollment:
species: mice
organ: bone marrow
detection: by antibody to surface molecules (phenotype) by flow cytomentry

LSK = Lineage-negative (lin-), Sca-1+, c-Kit+ cells
