AbstractCombinations of murine recombinant interleukin 3 (IL-3), purified murine macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF), and human recombinant interleukin 1 alpha (IL-1 alpha) were used to determine the effects of growth factors on the measured radiosensitivity of different populations of murine colony-forming cells (CFC). The data showed that combinations of growth factors resulted in different values of CFC radiosensitivity, being less than values observed when colony growth was stimulated using a single factor. For various combinations of growth factors, Do values ranged from 106 +/- 8 to 175 +/- 24 cGy for progenitor cells in normal bone marrow; 74 +/- 3 to 171 +/- 18 cGy for primitive multipotent CFC enriched using fluorescence-activated cell sorting; and from 46 +/- 4 to 131 +/- 10 cGy for more mature granulocyte-macrophage CFC, enriched by counterflow centrifugal elutriation. Only combinations of three factors produced the high values of Do reported in experiments using unpurified conditioned medium as a stimulus for colony formation.
