How do hematopoietic stem cells divide?
1 daughter returns to SC pool

1 daughter begins to differentiate
What are important factors in Non-hematopoietic regulation of hematopoiesis?
1. Environment such as fibroblasts, endothelial cells,etc

2. Activated T cells, monocytes amplify basal pathways during infection

3. Hematopoietic Growth Factors - CSF's, IL's

What is EPO's function?
Stimulates erythropoiesis
What are the functions of G-CSF and GM-CSF
Colony Stimulating Factors that stimulate proliferation of myeloid progenitor cells

- Speed differentiation to neutrophils

- helps with recovery after bone marrow transplantation
