Differentiation of Macrophage Antigen(s) in Mouse Bone Marrow and Buffy Coat Cultures
Kinetic studies have demonstrated that the mononuclear phagocytic cells or macrophages of serous cavities, lung alveoli and connective tissue originate from precursor cells (promonocytes) in the bone marrow (1–3). These cells give rise to the peripheral blood monocytes, which constitute a mobile pool capable of differentiating further into macrophages at different sites.
