- Creation of mature blood deep within the bone “The marrow of life” The endless regenerative cycle, DNA stem cell function
- Deep inside of our skeletal system our bone marrow the soft tissue where blood and lymph cells are created from hematopoietic stem cells
- This process creates both “daughter” cells & new stem cells that repeat the process creating an endless & regenerative cycl
They produce billions of blood cells every day.
- Each progenitor cell will divide and multiply into new types of cells until finally reaching the full maturity and differentiation
- Four primary types of cells are created red cells, white cells, platelets and plasma cells
- Our blood cells reach full maturity in the marrow before they migrate into the blood vessels and enter the blood stream
- White cells, such as T-cell lymphocyctes do not reach full maturity in the marrow but instead migrate to the lymph nodes & thymus where they must fully evolve
