Abstract

The involvement of soluble factors in the regulation of mammalian cell proliferation and differentiation has received considerable attention within the past decade. Extensive investigations have established the importance of soluble factor mediated control, during the ontogeny of many cellular populations, including normal epithelial, fibroblastic, hematopoetic and lymphoid (1).
