Abstract

In spite of their apparently restricted differentiation potentiality, hematopoietic precursors are plastic cells able to trans-differentiate from a maturation lineage to another. To better characterize this differentiation plasticity, we purified CD14- and CD14+ myeloid precursors generated by 'in vitro' culture of human CD34+ hematopoietic progenitors. Morphological analysis of the investigated cell populations indicated that, as expected, they consisted of granulocyte and monocyte precursors, respectively. Treatment with differentiation inducers revealed that CD14- cells were bipotent granulo-monocyte precursors, while CD14+ cells appeared univocally committed to a terminal macrophage maturation. Flow cytometry analysis demonstrated that the conversion of granulocyte precursors to the mono-macrophage maturation lineage occurs through a differentiation transition in which the granulocyte-related myeloperoxidase enzyme and the monocyte-specific CD14 antigen are co-expressed. Expression profiling evidenced that the observed trans-differentiation process was accompanied by a remarkable upregulation of the monocyte-related MafB transcription factor.
