Caption: Hematopoietic stem cells isolated from human bone marrow (adult). These stem cells are part of the hematopoietic / reticuloendothelial system and give rise to specialized blood cells (macrophages, histiocytes). This is the macrophage system that includes all histiocytes, macrophages, reticular cells, monocytes and microglia. It does not include the granular white blood cells (granulocytes).
