Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and multipotential colony-stimulating factor (multi-CSF or interleukin 3) are two members of a family of hemopoietic growth and differentiation factors. Using biologically active radioiodinated derivatives and chemical cross-linking (predominantly with the homobifunctional reagent disuccinimidyl suberate) followed by gel electrophoresis and autoradiography, receptors for these two factors have been identified. The G-CSF receptor was identified as a single subunit protein of Mr approximately 150,000 while two molecular species able to specifically cross-link to 125I-multi-CSF were identified of Mr approximately 75,000 and 60,000. For both CSFs spe..
