Hematopoiesis in organ cultures of embryonic liver is maintained for more than 2 months in this medium. The composition of the hematopoietic cells was determined from smears prepared from the cultures aged from 5 to 24 days (Table 3). , 1969). , 1970b). In ex plants of the liver from 13-day embryos, hematopoietic cells are not found in most cultures on the 16th-18th days. Cessation of hematopoiesis correlates with replacement of the liver parenchyma (except the cysts and ducts) by connective tissue cells.
It can be concluded from this finding that the maturation time from metamyelocyte to stab cell is evidently about 7 hI. 5 but less than 19 hI. On the whole, these results demonstrate the intensive proliferation and differentiation of myeloid cells under the conditions of organ culture.

This relationship holds true if the number of explanted cells is between 10 6 and 10 7 per 100 ml flask (Fig. 8). , the number of explanted cells for each colony, is about lOS nucleated cells for guinea pig and human bone marrow. , precursors of fibroblasts, give rise to colonies under culture conditions, and their actual concentration in the bone marrow suspensions is therefore perhaps higher than the concentration detected by colony formation in vitro. , 1971). - 40 1I • I 30 ! 20 •• I f/J. ~ 10 T 5 10 15 Fig.
