Brugger, W. and Kreutz, Marina and Andreesen, Reinhard (1991) Macrophage colony-stimulating factor is required for human monocyte survival and acts as a cofactor for their terminal differentiation to macrophages in vitro. Journal of leukocyte biology 49 (5), pp. 483-488.
Functional competence as well as phenotype heterogeneity of macrophages depend on the completion of their maturation pathway. Differentiation of committed myeloid progenitor cells is induced by colony-stimulating factors (CSF), but no consistent data exist on which factor(s) induce the terminal maturation from the circulating blood monocyte to the mature macrophage. In vitro, monocyte to ...
