Peripheral blood mononuclear cells.

Data from Zheng et al. (2017).

This experiment contains 68k peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) measured using 10X.

PBMCs are a diverse mixture of highly specialized immune cells. They originate from hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) that reside in the bone marrow and give rise to all blood cells of the immune system (hematopoiesis). HSCs give rise to myeloid (monocytes, macrophages, granulocytes, megakaryocytes, dendritic cells, erythrocytes) and lymphoid (T cells, B cells, NK cells) lineages.
