Fetal Macrophages Produce Interleukin 7 in the Fetal Hematopoietic Niche

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Tissue-resident macrophages play critical roles in tissue homeostasis and have a distinct fetal origin and developmental trajectory as compared to their adult bone marrow-derived counterparts. However, the specific mechanisms underlying their developmental signaling pathways have not been as thoroughly examined as in the adult. This project investigated fetal macrophage cells as a primary source of IL-7 production, a cell signal not associated with adult macrophage development
