    Mouse liver Kupffer cells were induced to proliferate and form discrete colonies of mononuclear phagocytes in vitro. These colony-forming cells from the liver are similar to other mononuclear phagocyte colony-forming cells in that they require a colony-stimulating factor present in medium conditioned by L cells for proliferation in vitro. Cells in the colonies were phagocytic and had IgG receptors on the membrane. For this class of colony-forming cells, the D0 value to gamma irradiation in vitro was 108 rads.
