Induction of human monocyte cell line U937 differentiation and CSF-1 production by phorbol ester.


The monoblast-like human histiocytic lymphoma cell line U937 can be induced by phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) at concentrations of 8-16 ng/ml to undergo differentiation. The induced cells show growth inhibition, morphological changes to monocyte-macrophage-like cells, and increases in nitroblue tetrazolium (NBT) and nonspecific esterase activities… (More)
