Granulocyte output is initially increased 4- to 5-fold. This increase is transient and granulocyte production declines as immature (Sca-1+/LIN-) cells accumulate.
"One third of these immature cells have a phenotype (Sca-1+/c-Kit+) characteristic of hematopoietic stem cells. At 2 to 3 weeks there are greater than 200-fold more Sca-1+/c-Kit+/LIN-cells in treated cultures than in controls. This population contains...
