Protein tyrosine phosphorylation was studied in macrophages and fibroblasts to identify putative components of post-receptor mitogenic pathways that might be functionally conserved in different cell types. Nondenaturing conditions were established for the approximately quantitative recovery of anti-phosphotyrosine antibody (αPY)-reactive proteins from cells. A common, 57-kDa αPY-reactive protein was identified by V8 protease peptide mapping in colony-stimulating factor-1 (CSF-1)- or granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF)-stimulated BAC1.2F5 macrophages, in platelet-derived growth factor-stimulated NIH-3T3 cells, and in CSF-1-stimulated NIH-3T3 cells expressing the c-fms/CSF-1 receptor. The 57-kDa protein was phosphorylated on serine and tyrosine and was the only αPY-reactive protein band whose phosphorylation was reproducibly increased in GM-CSF-stimulated cells. The effect of the growth factors on the tyrosine phosphorylation of the 57-kDa protein could be mimicked by treatment of the cells with orthovanadate, a phosphotyrosine protein phosphatase inhibitor. In the absence of growth factors, tyrosine phosphorylation of the 57-kDa protein was higher in v-fms or c-fms (F969, S301)-transformed NIH-3T3 cells than in untransformed NIH-3T3 (c-fms) and NIH-3T3 (c-fms, F969) cells. These data indicate that the 57-kDa protein is a common target for growth factor-stimulated tyrosine phosphorylation and potentially important for growth factor mitogenic signaling.
