Table 1 List of all compartments in the ODE model and their biological equivalents

From: Merging concepts - coupling an agent-based model of hematopoietic stem cells with an ODE model of granulopoiesis

Compartment Meaning Biological equivalents
S hematopoietic stem cells hematopoietic stem cells
CG granulopoietic progenitor cells CFU-GM (colony forming units of granulocytes and macrophages)
PGB proliferating granulopoietic precursor cells myeloblasts, promyelocytes, precursor myelocytes
MGB maturing granulopoietic precursor cells metamyelocytes (G4), banded (G5) and segmented (G6) granulocytes
GRA granulocytes granulocytes in circulation
G CG + PGB + MGB total granulopoietic cells in bone marrow
G-CSF G-CSF (granulocyte colony-stimulating factor) cytokine of granulopoiesis
GM-CSF GM-CSF (granulocyte, macrophage colony-stimulating factor) cytokine of granulopoiesis
CX Chemotherapy (damaging effect of) chemotherapy
