Hematopoietic stem cell differentiation mnemonic

Do you know that lymphoid and myeloid cells come from the same precursor?
Yes! It is the multipotent stem cell which differentiates into either a lymphoid or a myeloid stem cell
So how they know what to differentiate into?
Interleukins tell em what to do!

IL-7 stimulates the differentiation of multipotent (pluripotent) hematopoietic stem cells into lymphoid progenitor cells
IL-3 stimulates the differentiation of multipotent (pluripotent) hematopoietic stem cells into myeloid progenitor cells

How do I remember that? @_@

Here's a mnemonic just for you :*
