The relationship between hematopoietic cells and endothelial cells has been seen as an indication that a common progenitor, the hemangioblast, gives rise to both cell types in the yolk sac, the initial site of hematopoiesis and blood vessel formation during mammalian development. The existence of angioblast-like circulating endothelial precursor cells in adults humans has recently been suggested. In this review, we have summarized the principle mechanisms involved in the cross-talk signaling pathway between hematopoiesis and angiogenesis in order to further understand how the hematopoietic and vascular systems are established during the development.
