Biologic and biochemical properties of a human basophil-like cell promoting activity (BaPA), which induces growth of metachromatically staining cells from normal bone marrow cells in a liquid culture system have been examined. In order to study this T cell factor, an assay was developed based on the intracellular histamine content of the cultured human bone… CONTINUE READING
