Human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor specifically binds to murine myeloblastic NFS-60 cells and activates their guanosine triphosphate binding proteins/adenylate cyclase system

S MatsudaS Asano


The specific binding of human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) to its receptors on NFS-60 cells acts as a primer for cellular proliferation. There are approximately 400 binding sites per cell, with a binding constant of about 100 pmol/L. Before the proliferative response, the affinity constant of the membrane particulate fraction to 35S-labeled guanosine triphosphate-gamma-S (35S-GTP gamma S) and the intracellular cyclic adenylate monophosphate (cAMP) level increased in the presence of G-CSF to about 2.5-fold and about fivefold higher, respectively, than the levels seen in the absence of G-CSF. The increases were time-dependent, with a peak occurring 15 minutes after the addition of G-CSF at 37 degrees C. These findings suggest that, following the binding of the G-CSF to its surface receptors, the activation of the guanosine triphosphate (GTP)-binding protein/adenylate cyclase system may be involved in the proliferation of immature myeloid cells.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.
