The simplest explanation for these findings is that apoptosis is one of the ways in which HSC numbers are regulated, and that BCL-2 overexpression directly blocks apoptosis of HSC. It is likely that on a day-to-day basis, the maintenance of appropriate numbers of cells in each lineage is mostly effected at the level of progenitors more committed than HSC. In addition to apoptosis, numerous cytokines, such as IL-l, IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-11, IL-12, monocyte colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF), G-CSF, GM-CSF, erythropoietin (EPO) , and leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) have been implicated by in vitro or in vivo studies in regulation or maintenance of hematopoietic progenitors.

SDF-1 has also been suggested to function in mobilization of hematopoietic progenitor cells from bone marrow to blood. , 1997). , E. P. Bowman, E. C. , unpublished data, 2000. This may be attributable to species differences, or it may suggest that differences exist between the behavior of CD34+ cells, only a small fraction of which are HSC, and that of purified HSC. Also, it should be noted that another group did not observe differences in migration between CD34 + cells obtained from mobilized peripheral blood and CD34+ cells obtained from bone marrow.

1997) showed that although T and B lymphopoiesis in mice lacking the ex chain of the IL-7 receptor is severely disrupted, enforced expression of the bcl-2 gene in a T-lineage-specific manner in these mice restored thymic T lymphopoiesis to near-normal levels. This suggests that the IL-7 receptor transmits cell survival signals that can be bypassed nonspecifically. Other cytokines may function similarly (Lagasse and Weissman, 1997). Whether or not some cytokines may have a role in specification of cell fate, rather than simply supporting already-committed cells, is under investigation.
