Regulation of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell numbers and function as well as that of their more mature offspring within the bone marrow is critical for normal hematopoiesis. In this article, we mainly describe the role of the chemokine stromal-derived factor-1/CXCL12 and its receptor, CXCR4, in maintenance of these cell populations within the bone marrow. This includes mechanisms in which CXCL12 and CXCR4 expression is regulated under homeostatic or inflammatory conditions, and how this alters the balance between myeloid and lymphoid cell development.
