Normal murine hemopoietic progenitor cells (colony-forming cells, CFC), representing 0.2% of the bone marrow cell population, were purified to homogeneity by fluorescence-activated cell sorting. CFC require the presence of the murine hemopoietic regulator, granulocyte-macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) for survival, proliferation, and differentiation along the myeloid pathway. An analysis of protein phosphorylation in GM-CSF-stimulated CFC over a 20-hr period demonstrated three phosphoproteins of approximate MW 21 kd and pI 6.2, 5.7 and 5.2 p21-6.2 persisted for 14 hr, while p21-5.7 and p21-5.2 were only detected during the first 5 hr of the analysis. The phosphate turnover time i..
