The TH1 Lymphokine Interferon-γ is a Potent Upregulator of Dendritic Cells with Phagocytic Capacity in GM-CSF Supplemented Bone Marrow Cultures
Myeloid dendritic cells (DC), macrophages and granulocytes are descendants of a hematopoietic progenitor cell that originates in the bone marrow1. Thus, bone marrow derived cells distributed in tissue culture in the presence of GM-CSF give rise to the three leukocyte populations which under various in vitro culture conditions proceed in differentiation and phenotypic maturation2–7.
