When spleen cells removed from plethoric BALB/c mice shortly after infection with Friend polycythemia virus were cultured, they subsequently increased their rate of hemoglobin synthesis in vitro without the addition of the hormone erythropoietin. The increased 59Fe incorporation into hemoglobin in vitro was part of a well-defined single wave unlike the progressive increase in hemoglobin synthesis that occurs in vivo. The peak occurred within the same total time (85-105 hr after infection), irrespective of either the virus dose or time after infection when the cells were removed from the animal and cultured. However, the magnitude of the peak increased with an increase in either of these two variables. Medium change experiments indicated that the time during which the peak occurred was not artificially determined by depletion of some medium component or the accumulation of an inhibitor. This system may be useful in separating the early events of Friend virus infection from the late effects on erythroid differentiation.
