Abstract

Murine bone marrow cells infected with replication-defective retroviruses containing v-raf alone or v-myc alone yielded transformed pre-B cell lines, while a retroviral construct containing both v-raf and v-myc oncogenes produced clonally related populations of mature B cells and mature macrophages. The genealogy of these transformants demonstrates that mature myeloid cells were derived from cells with apparent B-lineage commitment and functional immunoglobulin rearrangements. This system should facilitate studies of developmental relationships in hematopoietic differentiation and analysis of lineage determination.
