"I think our findings represent an exciting new avenue for studying hematopoiesis," said
Our data reveals a novel role of apoptotic protease inhibitors in stimulating hematopoiesis in vitro, thereby improving the quality of expanded grafts.
Taken together our results unveil a novel role of two apoptotic inhibitors; zVADfmk and zLLYfmk in stimulating hematopoiesis in vitro and improving the engraftment potential in vivo, making the expanded graft superior to the cytokine cultured HSPCs.
