Cytomegalovirus infection of the BS-1 human stroma cell line: effect on murine hemopoiesis.


BS-1, a stromal cell line derived from human bone marrow, can support the growth of murine erythroid (BFU-E), granulocyte-macrophage (CFU-GM), and megakaryocyte (CFU-M) progenitor cells in a short term in vitro coculture system.
