Sample text

Although murine mast cells appear to derive from a common basophil/mast cell progenitor, human mast cell development does not appear to conform to this pathway [75, 76]. Human mast cell progenitors, which are distinct from basophil progenitors, are marked by expression of CD34, c-Kit, and CD13, and they appear to have both monocytic and mast cell potential, which may explain why monocytosis (but not basophilia) is observed in patients with mast cell neoplasia [77, 78]. IL-3 plays a major role in basophil growth and differentiation, and basophilia (and eosinophilia) is seen shortly after exogenous administration [79].

2 Schematic diagram of hematopoiesis highlighting transcription factors (in italic) and microRNAs (in gray) that are active at each of the stages of hematopoietic differentiation. AML leukemia cell growth in mouse xenograft models [14, 15]. HSC and early hematopoietic progenitors tend to predominantly lodge into endosteal niches near N-cadherin-expressing osteoblasts, where they tend to remain quiescent, perhaps under the influence of osteoblast-secreted Angiopoietin-1, active at HSC TIE2 receptors.

Another transcriptional regulator is the family of core binding factors, consisting of the DNA binding proteins RUNX1--3 and the non-DNA binding element, CBFb. The complex of RUNX1 and CBFb is particularly important in hematopoietic ontogeny. In fact mutations involving these proteins are commonly observed in human acute leukemias. Inactivation of either RUNX1 or CBFb in murine models leads to a profound defect in megakaryocytic differentiation (with little impact on erythropoiesis). Clinically, RUNX1 mutations are associated with the autosomal dominant familial platelet disorder with predisposition to AML (FPD/AML), with these leukemias likely occurring as a direct consequence of perturbed HSC homeostasis [53].
