AcSDKP, an inhibitor of CFU-S proliferation, is synthesized in mice under steady-state conditions and secreted by bone marrow in long-term culture

Leukemia. 1990 Mar;4(3):235-7.


The peptide AcSDKP, isolated from fetal calf bone marrow, is able to prevent DNA synthesis in mouse CFU-S in vivo and in vitro. The molecule is demonstrated here to be constitutively produced in mice and synthesized by bone marrow cells in long term culture.
