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 ...
