The defining properties of multipotent hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are their ability to differentiate into multiple lymphoid and myeloid lineages, as well as to self-renew to ensure that the HSC pool is not depleted over the lifespan of an individual. As HSCs proliferate, they progress through a series of lineage commitment steps, producing hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) that are shorter-lived and more restricted in their differentiation potential.
