These stem cells are part of the hematopoietic and reticuloendothelial systems and give rise to specialized blood cells (macrophages, histiocytes). This is the macrophage system that includes all histiocytes, macrophages, reticular cells, monocytes and microglia. It does not include the granular white blood cells (granulocytes).
