CFU-GEMM is a colony forming unit that generates myeloid cells. CFU-GEMM cells are multipotential progenitor cells. "GEMM" stands for granulocyte, erythrocyte, monocyte, megakaryocyte.
CFU-GEMM gives rise to CFU-GM.
It has been suggested that eosinophils do not derive from the common myeloid progenitor in humans.
