High concentrations of insulin are known to augment the growth of various cell types in vitro. We examined the effect of a purified porcine insulin and biosynthetic human insulin produced in E. coli on the growth of human erythroid progenitors in vitro. Both insulins stimulated peripheral blood erythroid colony formation within the physiological range. An… CONTINUE READING
