“During the final stages of thrombopoiesis, platelets are shed from the cytoplasm of their precursors and then enter the bloodstream.”
“Platelets develop from precursor cells found in the bone marrow, a process that is called thrombopoiesis.”
“Alpdogan O, Shieh JH, Wong D, Merzouk A, et al. (2004) Increased plasma levels of stromal-derived factor-1 (SDF-1 / CXCL12) enhance human thrombopoiesis and mobilize human colony-forming cells (CFC) in NOD / SCID mice.”
“We have shown that SDF-1 enhances human thrombopoiesis in xenotransplanted NOD / SCID mice”
Looking for tweets for thrombopoiesis.
