    Abstract

    Hematopoietic stem cells are capable of multi-lineage differentiation to all blood cell types as well as self-renewal and radioprotection. Thy-1.1lo Lin-/lo Sca-1+ cells are a heterogeneous mixture of quiescent and self-renewing hematopoietic stem cells as well as multi-lineage expanding cells.
