Approximately 40 amino-terminal residues and 20 internal residues of CSF-1 purified from the media of cultured human pancreatic carcinoma (MIA PaCa) cells and of cultured murine L cells have been identified. Results indicated that the two subunits in each molecule of biologically active CSF-1 are identical in their amino-terminal portions. The twelve amino-terminal residues of MIA PaCa CSF-1 were found to be identical to those of human-urinary CSF-1, suggesting that the polypeptide portions of the two human proteins may be identical. Approximately 75% of the amino acids identified in both MIA PaCa CSF-1 and murine CSF-1 were found to be common to both. No homology to other proteins was observed. This study suggests a subunit polypeptide Mr nearer to 17K than to 26K predicted from cDNA.
