Macrophage colony stimulating factor (M-CSF or CSF-1) acts to regulate the development and function of cells of the macrophage lineage. Murine myeloid FDC-P1 cells transfected with the CSF-1 receptor (FD/WT) adopt a macrophage-like morphology when cultured in CSF-1. This process is abrogated in FDC-P1 cells transfected with the CSF-1 receptor with a tyrosine to phenyalanine substitution at position 807 (FD/807), suggesting that a molecular interaction critical to differentiation signaling is lost (Bourette, R. P., Myles, G. M., Carlberg, K., Chen, A. R., and Rohrschneider, L. R. (1995) Cell Growth Differ. 6, 631-645). A detailed examination of lysates of CSF-1-treated FD/807 cells by two-dimensional SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) revealed a number of proteins whose degree of tyrosine phosphorylation was modulated by the Y807F mutation. Included in this category were three phosphorylated proteins that co-migrated with p46/52Shc. Immunoprecipitation, Western blotting, and in vitro binding studies suggest that they are indeed p46/52Shc. A key regulator of differentiation in a number of cell systems, ERK was observed to exhibit an activity that correlated with the relative degree of differentiation induced by CSF-1 in the two cell types. Transfection of cells with a non-tyrosine-phosphorylatable form of p46/52Shc prevented the normally observed CSF-1-mediated macrophage differentiation as determined by adoption of macrophage-like morphology and expression of the monocyte/macrophage lineage cell surface marker, Mac-1. These results are the first to suggest that p46/52Shc may play a role in CSF-1-induced macrophage differentiation. Additionally, a number of proteins were identified by two-dimensional SDS-PAGE whose degree of tyrosine phosphorylation is also modulated by the Y807F substitution. This group of molecules may contain novel signaling molecules important in macrophage differentiation.
