Hematopoiesis is the process by which cells of the blood and immune system are generated in the bone marrow. Hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) are self-renewing cells that reside in the bone marrow. These cells control the balance of cell division, death, and differentiation.

Most daughter cells retain the characteristics of the mother cell but some become progenitor cells. Progenitor cells further differentiate into specific lineages of cells that form different components of the immune system. There are two choices that the HSC can make: to become a common myeloid progenitor or a common lymphoid progenitor cell.

Which of the following cell types are derived from a common lymphoid progenitor?

A

Macrophages.

B

Monocytes.

C

Granulocytes.

D

Erythrocytes.

E

T cells.
