Abstract

Although mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) are an important component of the hematopoietic niche, the markers that correlate with their physiological functions have not been defined. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Zhou et al. (2014) identify the Leptin Receptor as a marker for prospective identification and in vivo fate mapping of bone marrow MSCs.
