Hematopoietic progenitors and synergism of interferon-gamma and stem cell factor.


Interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), an immunoregulatory cytokine produced by activated T cells and natural killer cells in response to viral infection or other stimuli, is generally recognized as a suppressor of hematopoiesis. IFN-gamma inhibited in vitro colony formation by granulocyte-macrophage (GM), erythroid and multipotential progenitors. This cytokine… (More)
