Agents used to mobilize stem cells bind to the chemokine receptor CXCR4 and inhibit the binding of stromal cell-derived factor-1-alpha (SDF-1-alpha) which leads to the mobilization of hematopoietic stem cells to the peripheral blood. This means stem cells can be more easily collected from peripheral blood for stem cell transplant.
