Endothelio-hematopoietic relationship: getting closer to the beginnings

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

The close association between hematopoietic and endothelial cells during embryonic development led to the proposal that they may originate from a common ancestor--the hemangioblast. Due to a lack of unique specific markers for in vivo cell fate tracking studies, evidence supporting this theory derives mainly from in vitro differentiation studies. Teixeira and colleagues describe a novel enhancer that drives specific eGFP expression in blood islands of the electroporated chick embryo, thereby presenting a tool potentially suitable for analysis of hemangioblast differentiation and development of blood islands.
