Conference paper


Bone marrow stroma cells are supposed to represent a significant cell population in the hemopoietic microenvironment. They have been shown to form colonies and to arise from their specific clonogenic precursors (stroma cell colony forming units, CFU ST) in appropriate culture systems [1–3].
