An erythropoietin-independent virus-induced murine erythroleukemia (FVP) is used to compare the effects of an erythropoiesis inhibitory factor (EIF) isolated from human urine with the effects of prostaglandin F2α. The consequent inhibition of FVP-induced erythropoiesis suggests that EIF and PGF2α have similar effects on the FVP-induced erythropoiesis in mice, and the effect of PGF2α is indirect. The similarity of the actions of EIF and PGF2α may indicate a potential role for prostaglandins in the physiological control of some types of erythrocytosis.
