Significant advances in the use of genetic and molecular biology strategies have recently begun to identify genes that have a major impact on the determination, commitment and developmental potential of hematopoietic stem cells. Using a variety of experimental strategies, genes such as SCL, GATA-2, HoxB4, Flk-2, c-mpl, dlk, and others have been implicated as important regulators of stem cell growth. In addition, genetic mapping has identified several loci that correlate strongly with stem cell numbers and proliferation.
