Abstract

Either of two hematopoietic growth factors, GM-CSF or Il-3, are required for the growth of the bone marrow-derived FDC-P1 cell line. These factors induce cellular tyrosine-specific protein kinases when added to resting cells. The receptors for these factors have not been unambiguously shown to contain a kinase domain. To determine whether src-related kinases, in particular pp60(C-src, are regulated by GM-CSF or IL-3, FDC-P1 cells were transfected with plasmids carrying polyoma middle-T antigen, a potent activator of pp60(c-src). Middle-T-expressing cells showed a reduced requirement for GM-CSF and IL-3 and selected clones grew in the absence of these factors. Middle-T formed a complex with pp60(c-src) and stimulated its in vitro kinase activity 20-50 fold. pp60(c-src) kinase activity was further increased if middle T-expressing, factor-independent cells were treated with GM-CSF or IL-3.
