Immunoprecipitated retinoblastoma protein from HL60 cells migrated as a series of bands during electrophoresis. The heterogeneity appeared to be generated by phosphorylation of the retinoblastoma protein. Treatment of the cells with the phorbol ester, tetradecanoyl phorbol acetate (TPA), resulted in both a loss of the heterogeneity of the pRB species and a significant decrease in the level of pRB phosphorylation. These changes accompanied differentiation of the HL60 cells into macrophages. Treatment of the cells with dibutyryl cAMP also resulted in dephosphorylation of pRB as well as cell cycle arrest, although no recognizable differentiation occurred. These results are consistent with a model in which TPA and dibutyryl cAMP dependent pathways can activate pRB by altering its phosphorylation.
