Summary Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is the major regulator of neutrophil production. Studies in cell lines have established that conserved tyrosines Y704, Y729, Y744, Y764 within the cytoplasmic domain of G-CSF receptor (G-CSF-R) contribute significantly to G-CSF-induced proliferation, differentiation and cell survival. However, it is unclear whether these tyrosines are equally important under more physiological conditions. Here, we investigated how individual G-CSF-R tyrosines affect G-CSF responses of primary myeloid progenitors. We generated GCSF- R deficient mice and transduced their bone marrow cells with tyrosine "null" mutant (mO), single tyrosine "add back" mutants or wild type (WT) receptors. G-CSFinduced responses were determined in primary colony assays, serial replatings and suspension cultures. We show that removal of all tyrosines had no major influence on primary colony growth. However, adding back Y764 strongly enhanced proliferativeresponses, which was reverted by inhibition of ERK activitity. Y729, which we found to be associated with the suppressor of cytokine signaling, SOCS3, had a negative effect on colony formation. After repetitive replatings, the clonogenic capacities of cells expressing mO gradually dropped compared to WT. The presence of Y729, but also Y704 and Y744, both involved in activation of STAT3, further reduced replating
efficiencies. Conversely, Y764 greatly elevated the clonogenic abilities of myeloid progenitors, resulting in a >104–fold increase of colony forming cells over mO after the fifth replating. These findings suggest that tyrosines in the cytoplasmic domain of G-CSF-R, although dispensable for G-CSF-induced colony growth, recruit signaling mechanisms that regulate the maintenance and outgrowth of myeloid progenitor cells.
