Abstract

Hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells reside predominantly in the bone marrow. They supply billions of mature blood cells every day during life through maturation into multilineage progenitors and self-renewal. Newly produced mature cells serve to replenish the pool of circulating blood cells at the end of their life-span. These mature blood cells and a few hematopoietic progenitors normally exit the bone marrow through the sinusoidal vessels, a specialized venous vascular system that spreads throughout the bone marrow. Many signals regulate the coordinated mobilization of hematopoietic cells from the bone marrow to the circulation. In this review, we present recent advances on hematopoiesis and hematopoietic cell mobilization with a focus on the role of Ephrin ligands and their Eph receptors. These constitute a large family of transmembrane ligands and receptors that play critical roles in development and postnatally. New insights point to distinct roles of ephrin and Eph in different aspects of hematopoiesis.
