During the last few years there has been major progress in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying the regulation of haemopoietic stem cell proliferation and development. In the past 12 months, advances have been made in identifying how growth factor receptor expression is regulated in primitive haemopoietic cells, in determining the transcription factors that are associated with development, and in recognizing some of the specific molecular interactions that occur between the bone marrow stromal cells and the haemopoietic progenitor cells. These and previous studies clearly demonstrate that the environment can influence the survival, the proliferation and the differentiation of haemopoietic cells at every stage of development.
