Cobblestone forming units
Cobblestone forming units - the number of hematopoietic stem cells (hscs) that migrate between or beneath a co-cultured feeder cell layer and become trapped. When hscs are cultured with a feeder layer and observed using phase contrast microscopy, the trapped cells appear less spherical and less refractile than the hscs that are floating loosely on top of the feeder layer.
