Description: established from a heparinized bone marrow aspiration sample from a 35 year old Japanese male with severe pancytopenia; the cells are completely dependent on interleukin 3 (IL-3, also known as multi-colony stimulating factor or M-CSF) or granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) for long term growth; the cells do not respond to interleukin 5 (IL-5); the cells respond to a variety of other lymphokines and cytokines such as interleukin 1 (IL-1), interleukin 4 (IL-4), interleukin 6 (IL-6), interleukin 9 (IL-9), Interleukin 11 (IL-11), interleukin 13 (IL-13), stem cell factor (SCF), leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and nerve growth factor (NGF); the cells do not express glycophorin A or carbonyl anhydrase I; the morphological and cytochemical features, and the constitutive expression of globin genes, indicate the commitment of the cells to the erythroid lineage; hemin and delta-aminolevulinic acid induce hemoglobin synthesis, and TPA induces dramatic differentiation of the TF-1 cells into macrophage-like cells; the TF-1 cell line is unique because of its responsiveness to multiple cytokines and provides a good system for investigating the proliferation and differentiation of myeloid progenitor cells.
