Anatomical terminology

CFU-GM (or "GMP", for "granulocyte-macrophage progenitor") is a colony forming unit. It is derived from CFU-GEMM.

The "GM" stands for "granulocyte, monocyte".[1]

It is the precursor for monoblasts and myeloblasts.

Production is stimulated by granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF).

Granulocytes

There is some controversy over which granulocytes derive from CFU-GM.

  • There is little disagreement that neutrophils come from CFU-GM.
  • Other sources state that basophils do not derive from CFU-GM, but from a distinct CFU, titled "CFU-Baso".[3]
