A 13-24 C-terminal peptide related to PF4 accelerates hematopoietic recovery of progenitor cells in vivo in mice treated with 5-fluorouracil.


We have recently reported that platelet factor 4 (PF4), a megakaryocyte-platelet protein, is a potent inhibitor of human and murine megakaryocytopoiesis. In addition, PF4 accelerated the recovery of the marrow precursor cells in 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) treated mice. We show in this study that a slight modification of the C-terminal peptide related to PF4 (C13… (More)
