    Myelodysplasia is a hematological disease in which genomic abnormalities accumulate in a hematopoietic stem cell leading to severe pancytopenia, multilineage differentiation impairment, and bone marrow (BM) apoptosis. Mortality in the disease results from pancytopenia or transformation to acute...

    The tumor stroma is critical in cancer progression; understanding its formation is therefore important biologically and therapeutically. In this issue of the JCI, Elkabets et al. report on the generation of data in mice that lead them to propose that certain tumors can stimulate the growth of a...

  • Rapid mobilization of hematopoietic progenitors by AMD3100 and catecholamines is mediated by CXCR4-dependent SDF-1 release from bone marrow stromal cells. Dar, A.; Schajnovitz, A.; Lapid, K.; Kalinkovich, A.; Itkin, T.; Ludin, A.; Kao, W.-M.; Battista, M.; Tesio, M.; Kollet, O.; Cohen, N.

    Steady-state egress of hematopoietic progenitor cells can be rapidly amplified by mobilizing agents such as AMD3100, the mechanism, however, is poorly understood. We report that AMD3100 increased the homeostatic release of the chemokine stromal cell derived factor-1 (SDF-1) to the circulation in...

  • Cooperation between RUNX1-ETO9a and Novel Transcriptional Partner KLF6 in Upregulation of Alox5 in Acute Myeloid Leukemia. DeKelver, Russell C.; Lewin, Benjamin; Lam, Kentson; Komeno, Yukiko; Yan, Ming; Rundle, Chandler; Lo, Miao-Chia; Zhang, Dong-Er // PLoS Genetics;Oct2013, Vol. 9 Issue 10, p1 

    Fusion protein RUNX1-ETO (AML1-ETO, RUNX1-RUNX1T1) is expressed as the result of the 8q22;21q22 translocation [t(8;21)], which is one of the most common chromosomal abnormalities found in acute myeloid leukemia. RUNX1-ETO is thought to promote leukemia development through the aberrant regulation...

    Total body irradiation (TBI) can induce lethal myelosuppression, due to the sensitivity of proliferating hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs) to ionizing radiation (IR). No effective therapy exists to mitigate the hematologic toxicities of TBI. Here, using selective and structurally...

    Based on previously published observations regarding the protective effects of interleukin-1 (IL-1) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) against gamma radiation, alkylating agents and ultraviolet radiation, we hypothesized that the protection against such DNA damaging treatments can be...

  • Chronic myeloid leukemia: mechanisms of blastic transformation. Perrotti, Danilo; Jamieson, Catriona; Goldman, John; Skorski, Tomasz // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Jul2010, Vol. 120 Issue 7, p2254 

    The BCR-ABL1 oncoprotein transforms pluripotent HSCs and initiates chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Patients with early phase (also known as chronic phase [CP]) disease usually respond to treatment with ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), although some patients who respond initially later...
