precursor cell


Also found in: Wikipedia.

precursor cell

a population of cells in the bone marrow that are incapable of self-renewal; they are derived from progenitor cells and are the first cells of a particular blood cell line that can be recognized due to their specific morphologic characteristics (e.g., proerythroblast).
