Interleukin-3 (IL-3) is one of a large and growing group of growth factors which support the proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic progenitors as well as cells committed to various myeloid lineages. The term IL-3 was initially introduced to identify a T-cell-derived lymphokine which was capable of inducing the expression of the enzyme 20α-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (20αSDH) in cultures of nude mouse splenic lymphocytes (IHLE et al. 1981, 1982a). This assay was developed to identify T-cell factors which might support the proliferation and differentiation of early hematopoietic progenitors capable of committing to T-lineage differentiation (Ihle and Weinstein 1986). With the purification of IL-3 to homogeneity it became evident this lymphokine had a broad spectrum of activities on hematopoietic cells and was equivalent to other biological activities which had been characterized including mast cell growth factor activity, P-cell stimulating factor activity, burst promoting activity, multi-colony stimulating factor, thy-1 inducing factor, and WEHI-3 growth factor as well as a number of other activities for which the factors had been less characterized (Ihle et al. 1983; Ihle and Weinstein 1986; Ihle 1986).
