Human Flt3 ligand (Flt3L) stimulates early hematopoiesis by activating a type III tyrosine kinase receptor on primitive bone marrow stem cells. The crystal structure of soluble Flt3L reveals that it is a homodimer of two short chain alpha-helical bundles (1). Flt3 is a hematopoietic growth factor that stimulates cells via specific and structurally related tyrosine kinase receptors on the cell surface (2). This growth factor stimulated the proliferation of hematopoietic progenitor cells isolated from mouse fetal liver or adult mouse bone marrow (3).
