A rare population of bone marrow-derived 'facilitating cells' promote hematopoietic stem cell engraftment without causing graft-versus-host disease, but little is known about the identity of these cells. A new facilitating cell surface marker will make them easier to study and may lead to improvements in bone marrow and solid organ transplantation (904-909).
