haematopoietic stem cell


haematopoietic stem cell
Cell that gives rise to distinct daughter cells, one a replica of the stem cell, one a cell that will further proliferate and differentiate into a mature blood cell. Pluripotent stem cells can give rise to all lineages, committed stem cells (derived from the pluripotent stem cell) only to some.
