Quantification and three-dimensional microanatomical organization of the bone marrow


Nombela-Arrieta, C; Manz, M G (2017). Quantification and three-dimensional microanatomical organization of the bone marrow. Blood advances, 1(6):407-416.

Abstract

Bone marrow (BM) constitutes one of the largest organs in mice and humans, continuously generating, in a highly regulated manner, red blood cells, platelets, and white blood cells that together form the majority of cells of the body. In this review, we provide a quantitative overview of BM cellular composition, we summarize emerging knowledge on its structural organization and cellular niches, and we argue for the need of multidimensional approaches such as recently developed imaging techniques to uncover the complex spatial logic that underlies BM function in health and disease.
