Progenitor cell is like a stem cell that has a tendency to differentiate into a specific type of cell. It is more specific than a stem cell and used to differentiate into its target cell. Majority of progenitor cells are dormant or have the activity of tissue in which they residue. In place of damaged or dead cells, progenitor cells are activated by triggering of growth factors or cytokines. Examples: satellite cells, immediate progenitor cells, bone marrow stromal cells.
