After i had been studing for histology examp i tried to solved one nominclature dilema.Its about fibrocytes and fibroblast.
In my histology book is statment, that fibrocytes is special type of cell which can be differentiated to different cell types by specific occasion ( for example exposure to transcript factors).
Then fibroblast is cell of connective tissue. Its differentiated.
Why is differentiated cell named with blast (usually active type) istead fibrocyte (usually the differentiated one)?
