Zebra Fish Whole Kidney Marrow cells. Myeloid, Precursor, and Lymphoid % after RBC Lysis
The Zebrafish is an established model system for studying the embryonic emergence of tissues and organs, including the hematopoietic system. Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSC) are pluripotent cells that maintain all the differentiated blood lineages throughout the life of an organism. The functional definition of an HSC is a transplanted cell that has the ability to reconstitute all the blood lineages. This designation was established by decades of seminal work in mammalian systems. Zebrafish has emerged as a powerful genetic model to study vertebrate hematopoiesis.
