Induction of alkaline phosphatase in neutrophilic granulocytes, a marker of cell maturity, from bone marrow of normal individuals by retinoic acid.

Abstract

We examined whether chemical agents reported to induce differentiation of leukemic cells also have differentiating effects on normal human granulocytes using alkaline phosphatase activity as a marker. Among 11 compounds examined, only vitamin A analogues were shown to induce this activity in granulocytes from bone marrow of normal individuals. Retinoic acid… (More)
