Formation and Differentiation of Leukocytes

Part of the Methods in Physiology Series book series (METHPHYS)


Inflammatory responses often involve the selective accumulation in tissues of complex mixtures of leukocytes. In order to understand the processes governing migration and accumulation of mature leukocytes, it is useful to begin by considering the development of leukocytes in adult bone marrow, as well as the earliest migrations made by hematopoietic cells during prenatal development.
