Abstract

Better insight into hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) development in the human embryo and fetus is crucial for translational research. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Prashad et al. (2014) describe a novel surface marker for human fetal liver HSCs, glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored protein GPI-80, that is functionally required for their self-renewal.
