Abstract

Serum from mice treated with bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was fractionated by Con A-Sepharose affinity chromatography, and assayed in vitro for colony-stimulating factor (CSF) using mouse bone marrow cells. The CSF failing to bind to concanavalin A-Sepharose (pool A) had similar biological properties to the unfractionated serum, i.e., it stimulated the formation of about equal numbers of granulocytic, mixed granulocyte-macrophage and macrophage colonies. The fraction eluted from the Con A-Sepharose column with alpha-methyl-D-glucopyranoside (pool B) had a steeper dose-response curve than either the unfractionated serum or the pool A CSF and most of the colonies were composed of macroph..
