State of 'hibernation' keeps haematopoietic stem cells young

Niches in the bone marrow protect haematopoietic stem cells from ageing
All tissues age. The blood-forming system is especially affected by ageing processes. Haematopoietic stem cells, the precursors to blood and immune cells, age exceptionally fast, losing the ability to divide and regenerate….
