Proliferative effect of postapheresis platelet donor plasma on a megakaryoblastic leukemia cell line


Platelet donors sometimes show an increased platelet count following apheresis. We analyzed the effect of plasma obtained from such donors, along with thrombopoietin (Tpo), for growth and differentiation-inducing activity on a megakaryoblastic leukemia cell line, Meg-J. Colony formation was stimulated by donor plasma for Meg-J cells in a dose-dependent… (More)
