ILC-poiesis: Making Tissue ILCs from Blood
The development of human innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) remains poorly characterized. In a recent issue of Cell, Lim et al. show that human peripheral-blood CD117+ ILCs harbor ILC precursors (ILCPs) derived from hematopoietic stem cells. Peripheral-blood ILCPs can generate all ILC subsets in vivo and in vitro.
