hemangioblast

 [he-man´je-o-blast″]
a mesodermal cell that gives rise to both vascular endothelium and hemocytoblasts.

Podocalyxin is abundantly expressed in embryonic stem cells and also is a marker of hemangioblasts, the common precursors of hematopoietic and ECs.
BMSCs show multipotential capacities to differentiate into osteoblasts, hemangioblasts, and endothelial cell progenitors, which function to repair the necrosis region of the femoral head [48, 49].
Vasculogenesis occurs when signalling pathways cause hemangioblasts and endothelial cells to assemble into primitive tubular networks.
During development, blood and vascular cells are thought to originate from a progenitor cell known as a hemangioblast. This research project identified and imposed six transcription factors on the cells that al lowed hemangioblasts to keep proliferating over multiple generations.
Indeed, the expression of this protein has been also documented in hemangioblastoma (HBL) [6, 7, 13, 14], a slow growing vascular tumour, which origins from mesoderm derived, embryologically arrested hemangioblasts [4, 13], which also express this protein [15].

Data on 10-20 times variation of personal stock of so-called primitive precursors cells including pluripotent stem cells, endothelial precursors and hemangioblasts in a blood of healthy people (Reihelt, Barz, and Thude, 2009) are remarkable in a sense of possible influence of such variability on individual resistance to diseases and malignancy.
Hemangioblasts can produce blood cells, immune cells and types of vascular cells.
Bone marrow aspirate is rich in hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic stem cells, endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) derived from embryonic hemangioblasts, and mesenchymal stem cells (MSC).
