Expression of the human c fms proto oncogene in hematopoietic cells and its deletion in the 5q minus syndrome

Cell 42(2): 421-428
Expression of the human c fms proto oncogene in hematopoietic cells and its deletion in the 5q minus syndrome
The c-fms proto-oncogene was shown to be expressed in human bone marrow and in differentiated blood mononuclear cells, suggesting that its gene prouct plays a role in hematopoietic maturation. The c-fms mRNA was not detected in HL-60 cells, an established promyelocytic line, whereas c-fms expression appeared 48 hr after induction when most cells had differentiated into macrophages. An acquired deletion of chromosome 5 (5q-) in bone marrow cells is associated with abnormalities in blood cell production. The normal 5 and rq- chromosomes were segregated by construction of cell hybrids between bone marrow and rodent cells. A selective system was used that requires retention of the strucutral gene for dihydrofolate reductase, located on human chromosome 5. Analysis of DNA from individual hybrid clones revealed that the 5q- deletion had removed the c-fms gene. We postulate that hemizygosity at the c-fms locus leads to abnormalities in hematopoietic maturation.
