CONCEPT NAME

Leukopoiesis

DESCRIPTION

Leukopoiesis is the process through which leukocytes are generated from haematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow. The two major forms of leukopoiesis are myelopoiesis and lymphopoiesis. Myelopoiesis generates cells of the innate immune system, whereas lymphopoiesis gives rise to the cells of the adaptive immune system.

    12 skos:historyNote [skos:definition - 2014.01.21] The process of generating white blood cells (LEUKOCYTES) from the pluripotent HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS of the BONE MARROW. There are two significant pathways to generate various types of leukocytes: MYELOPOIESIS, in which leukocytes in the blood are derived from MYELOID STEM CELLS, and LYMPHOPOIESIS, in which leukocytes of the lymphatic system (LYMPHOCYTES) are generated from lymphoid stem cells.
