  • 1Institute of Molecular Pathology, Vienna, Austria.


Analysis of the oncogenes v-erbB and v-erbA and their normal proto-oncogene counterparts has revealed several novel aspects of erythroid differentiation. A new erythroid progenitor capable of extended self-renewal has been described, tyrosine kinase receptors and steroid hormone receptors have been found to cooperate in controlling self-renewal, and dramatic alterations in the cell cycle have been found to accompany induction of terminal differentiation.
