granulopoiesis

 [gran″u-lo-poi-e´sis]
the formation and development of granulocytes; called also granulocytopoiesis. adj., adj granulopoiet´ic.

gran·u·lo·poi·e·sis

(gran'yū-lō-poy-ē'sis),
Production of granulocytes. In adults, granulocytes are produced chiefly in the red bone marrow of flat bones.
Synonym(s): granulocytopoiesis
[granulo(cyte) + G. poiēsis, a making]

For a comprehensive evaluation, a bone marrow biopsy was also performed to evaluate the pancytopenia that showed cellular and left shift erythropoiesis, megaloblastoid changes, and left shift granulopoiesis. The changes were suspicious but not specific to myelodysplastic syndrome, with other etiologies of consideration including medication nutritional supplements, immune disorders, heavy alcohol, vitamin B 12/folic acid deficiency, and viral infection.
(11) The significant association of infused CD34+ dosage and platelet engraftment rather than neutrophil engraftment does support that the quality of stem cells function is better reflected by megakaryopoiesis rather than granulopoiesis. (8) Granulopoiesis seems not to be so much affected since all patients were given granulocyte colony-stimulating growth factor as it has been shown to enhance neutrophil engraftment.
Howell-Jolly body-like inclusions are thought to represent a product of dysplastic granulopoiesis. In this light, we are curious to investigate the correlation of Howell-Jolly body-like inclusions and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).
IL-17 stimulates granulopoiesis in mice: use of an alternate, novel gene therapy- derived method for in vivo evaluation of cytokines.
IL-17A is known as an inflammatory cytokine whose main function is exerted on myeloid and mesenchymal cells by inducing the expression of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), IL-6, and other chemokines, which increase granulopoiesis and recruit neutrophils into the site of infection [46].
Trimethoprim inhibits granulopoiesis and erythropoiesis in vitro in a dose-dependent fashion [112].
IL-17A induces the production of defensins, cytokines, and chemokines and can promote granulopoiesis and neutrophil recruitment [10].
showed that BM adipocytes block granulopoiesis by cell-to-cell contact.

Bone marrow biopsy demonstrated reduced cellularity (10-15%), reduced erythropoiesis, granulopoiesis, and megakaryocytes.
Similarly, the continuous administration of CPH pectin showed no deleterious effects on neutrophils, suggesting that CPH pectin did not inhibit granulopoiesis or neutrophil function.
