Abstract The effects of transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) on proliferation and hemoglobinization in K-562 cells, a human multipotential hematopoietic cell line, were studied. We found that TGF-beta 1 could induce hemoglobin accumulation in K-562 cells. Various clones were selected on the basis of the inducibility of hemoglobinization by TGF-beta 1. One high response clone (no. 1) and one low response clone (no. 8) were studied in detail. Hemoglobin accumulation peaked on day 5 of culture in the presence of TGF-beta 1 (0.5 ng/mL, 20 pmol/L), when 90\% of clone 1 cells, 55\% of parent line cells, and less than 10\% of clone 8 cells contained hemoglobin. There was a concomitant reduction in proliferation of 60\% for clone 1, 40\% for the parent line, and 30\% for the clone 8 on day 5 of culture. Quantitative analysis showed that the hemoglobin contents in clone 1 after 5-day induction by TGF-beta 1 and hemin were 1.0 pg/cell and 2.9 pg/cell, respectively. The hemoglobin induced by TGF-beta 1 showed the same electrophoretic characteristics as the hemoglobin induced by hemin. The expression of epsilon-globin mRNA was minimally detectable in control cells and was induced in both TGF-beta 1 and hemin treated cells. Other cytokines with potential effects on K-562 cell proliferation and differentiation were also studied. Interleukin-1, interleukin-3, interferon alpha, interferon gamma, and inhibin, tested as single agents, showed minimal effects on proliferation. None of these agents could induce hemoglobinization or inhibit the hemoglobinization induced by TGF-beta 1.
