Normal human bone marrow mononuclear cells were fractionated by differential adherence, immunomagnetic separation, and fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS). The resultant fractionated cells were cultured in semisolid medium to monitor the presence of BFU-E, Mix-CFC, and nonerythroid CFC. Two populations of cells were recovered on the basis of binding by the monoclonal antibody (MoAb) RFB-1. One of these populations contained BFU-E that were stimulated only by erythropoietin (Epo), whereas… CONTINUE READING
