Identification of the ron gene product as the receptor for the human macrophage stimulating protein.
Macrophage-stimulating protein (MSP) is a member of the hepatocyte growth factor-scatter factor (HGF-SF) family. Labeled MSP bound to Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells transfected withExpand

Elevation of serum M‐CSF concentrations during pregnancy and ovarian hyperstimulation
Summary. Macrophage colony stimulating factor (CSF‐1 or M‐CSF) is involved in haemopoiesis and probably in mouse gestation. Sexual steroids induce its production by uterine glandular epithelial cellsExpand

Immunohistochemical detection of cells positive for colony-stimulating factor 1 in lymph nodes from reactive lymphadenitis, and Hodgkin's disease.
Colony-stimulating factor 1 (CSF-1) is a cytokine involved in hematopoiesis and perhaps more importantly in the early stages of immunological defense mechanisms. Although numerous studies of in vitroExpand

High titre anticytokine antibodies obtained by intralymphnode immunization with low amounts of antigen.
Intralymphnode immunization was performed on rabbits to obtain anticytokine antibodies using low or very low amounts of the following purified cytokines: CSF-1 (or M-CSF: 10, 2 or 0.2Expand

Binding Interactions of Leukemia Inhibitory Factor and Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor with the Different Subunits of Their High Affinity Receptors
Abstract: Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) share common components in their multimeric receptors. Both cytokine receptors contain gp130/interleukin‐6‐receptorExpand

Development of enzymo-immunoassays (EIA) for macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) and leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF) by using the same capture and signal generating polyclonal antibody.
Specific high titre polyclonal antibodies rapidly obtained by intralymphnode immunization of rabbits with recombinant M-CSF and LIF (< 60 micrograms/animal) have been used to develop specific,Expand

Leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF) production in pleural effusions: comparison with production of IL-4, IL-8, IL-10 and macrophage-colony stimulating factor (M-CSF).
Leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF), a pleiotropic cytokine detected in various inflammatory body fluids, plays a poorly defined role in the pathogenesis of human disease. This study was conducted toExpand
