Chapter 3: Cells of the immune system

Origin of cells of the immune system:
·        The cells of the immune system originate from hematopoietic stem cells found within the marrow of long tubular bones.
·        These hematopoietic stem cells are multipotent, that is, can form all blood cell types and have the capacity of self-renewal.
·        These cells will differentiate to commit a cell down the path of either myeloid or lymphoid cell lines depending on interleukin stimulation:
·        IL-3 stimulates the differentiation of multipotent hematopoietic stem cells into myeloid progenitor cells.
·        IL-7 stimulates differentiation into lymphoid progenitor cells.

This chapter will be split into different parts as each cell deserves its own post.I will link all posts in this post later.
