Human cultured monocyte-like tumour cells of the U937 histiocyte derived line were stimulated with phorbol myristate acetate, and generated and released an 18,000 MW polypeptide fibroblast-activating factor (FAF). Based on recognition by an antiserum to a synthetic peptide representing the 17 amino-terminal amino acids of FAF, two proteins of 32,000 and 35… CONTINUE READING
