The growth of primitive murine hematopoietic progenitors, high proliferative potential colony-forming cells (HPP-CFC), has been reported to be improved in low O2 tension cultures. In this report we investigated the growth of HPP-CFC stimulated by combinations of interleukin (IL)-1, IL-6, kit-ligand (KL), granulocyte (G) colony-stimulating factor (CSF), macrophage-CSF (M-CSF), granulocyte-macrophage-CSF (GM-CSF) and IL-3 in clonal cultures incubated at 7% or 21% O2 tension. Neither the numbers of HPP-CFC colonies nor the number of cells per HPP-CFC colony differed significantly between cultures grown under 7% or 21% O2 tension. The mean number of cells per HPP-CFC colony was found to range from 3.9 x 10(4) to 2.2 x 10(5). The smallest HPP-CFC colonies were stimulated by the cytokine combination IL-1 + IL-6 + KL, whereas the largest colonies were stimulated by a combination of all seven cytokines tested. The growth of erythroid colonies from murine or human bone marrow did, however, show some enhancement when cultured at a lower O2 tension. These results demonstrate that the growth of murine HPP-CFC was not compromised when cultured at ambient O2 concentration.
