[Effect of mononuclear phagocytes on the differentiation of syngeneic, allogeneic and xenogeneic hematopoietic stem cells].

Abstract

The colony formation in spleen of lethally irradiated syngeneic or hybrid recipients was studied after transplantation of bone marrow cells, with or without macrophages from lymph nodules or from peritoneal cavity of mice, cells of macrophage-like cell line J-774, and monocytes from peripheral blood of healthy donors. The direction of stem cell differentiations in the presence of all the types of mononuclear phagocytes was seen to change from mainly erythroid to mainly myeloid one. The ratio of erythroid to myeloid colonies became equal to 0.5-0.9 instead of 2.0, when bone marrow cells were injected with equivalent quantity of mononuclear phagocytes. This new regulatory function of mononuclear phagocytes is discussed.
