From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

CFU-GEMM is a colony forming unit that generates myeloid cells.

CFU-GEMM cells are multipotential progenitor cells.[1][2]

The "GEMM" stands for ""granulocyte, erythrocyte, monocyte, megakaryocyte".[3 ]

CFU-GEMM gives rise to CFU-GM.

It has been suggested that eosinophils do not derive from the common myeloid progenitor.[4]
