Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) converts almost all of the undifferentiated murine erythroleukemia cells (MEL or Friend cells, clone 745A) in a culture to differentiated cells that contain high levels of hemoglobin and that stop growing after a limited number of cell divisions. Contrary to other reports--that amiloride strongly inhibits DMSO-induced differentiation in MEL cells--in this laboratory, inhibition by amiloride, tested with DMSO over a range of concentrations in two kinds of media and at various cell densities, was found to be only weak or absent. Similarly, amiloride did not inhibit induction by N,N'-hexamethylene bis-acetamide (HMBA). As expected from previous findings with other cell systems, amiloride inhibited protein synthesis and cell multiplication.
