Production of erythroid potentiating factor(s) by a human monocytic cell line.


U-937 is a human monocytic cell line that has been to elaborate factors that affect normal human hematopoiesis in vitro. Studies on the effects of these factors demonstrated an erythroid potentiating factor (EPF) and a potent inhibitor of granulocyte-macrophage (CFU-GM) colony growth.
