Megakaryoblast

Megakaryoblast

[meg-uh-kar-ee-uh-blast]
A megakaryoblast is a precursor cell to a promegakaryocyte, which in turn becomes a megakaryocyte during haematopoiesis. It is the beginning of the thrombocytic series.

It derives from a CFU-Me colony unit of pluripotential hemopoietic stem cells.
