From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


A megakaryoblast is a precursor cell to a promegakaryocyte, which in turn becomes a megakaryocyte during haematopoiesis. It is the beginning of the thrombocytic series.

It derives from a CFU-Me colony unit of pluripotential hemopoietic stem cells. (Some sources use the term "CFU-Meg" to identify the CFU.[1])
