BACKGROUND: The KMT2A/MLL1 lysine methyltransferase complex is an epigenetic regulator of selected developmental genes, in part through the SET domain-catalysed methylation of H3K4. It is essential for normal embryonic development and haematopoiesis and frequently mutated in cancer. The catalytic properties and targeting of KMT2A/MLL1 depend on the proteins with which it complexes and the post-translational protein modifications which some of these proteins put in place, though detailed mechanisms remain unclear...

We studied acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients with lympho-myeloid clonal hematopoiesis (LM-CH), defined by the presence of DNA methyltransferase 3A (DNMT3A) mutations in both the myeloid and lymphoid T-cell compartment. Diagnostic, CR and relapse samples were sequenced for 34 leukemia-related genes in 171 DNMT3A mutated adult AML patients. AML with LM-CH was found in 40 patients (23%) and was associated with clonal haematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP) years prior to AML, older age, secondary AML, and more frequent MDS-type co-mutations (TET2, RUNX1 and EZH2)...

Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) provide an unparalleled opportunity to establish in vitro differentiation models that will transform our approach to the study of human development. In the case of the blood system, these models will enable investigation of the earliest stages of human embryonic haematopoiesis that was previously not possible. In addition, they will provide platforms for studying the origins of human blood cell diseases and for generating de novo haematopoietic stem and progenitor cell populations for cell-based regenerative therapies...

Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) arise in the developing aorta during embryogenesis. The number of HSC clones born has been estimated through transplantation, but experimental approaches to assess the absolute number of forming HSCs in a native setting have remained challenging. Here, we applied single-cell and clonal analysis of HSCs in zebrafish to quantify developing HSCs. Targeting creER(T2) in developing cd41:eGFP(+) HSCs enabled long-term assessment of their blood contribution. We also applied the Brainbow-based multicolour Zebrabow system with drl:creER(T2) that is active in early haematopoiesis to induce heritable colour barcoding unique to each HSC and its progeny...

The role of SRY-related high-mobility-group box (SOX) 12 in leukaemia progression and haematopoiesis remains elusive. This study aimed to examine the expression and function of SOX12 in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) using human myeloid leukaemia samples and the acute myeloid cell line THP1. Mononuclear cells were isolated from the bone marrow of AML patients and healthy donors. SOX12 expression in haematopoietic cells was evaluated by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). SOX12 short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) were transduced into THP1 cells, and gene knockdown was confirmed by quantitative RT-PCR and Western blot analysis...

AIMS: The myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of clonal haematopoietic stem cell disorders characterised by inefficient haematopoiesis and risk of progression to acute myeloid leukaemia. Metaphase cytogenetics is an extremely valuable clinical tool in the management of haematological malignancies. However, metaphase cytogenetics requires cellular proliferation, its sensitivity and resolution depends on the proportion of clonal cells in the sample and size of the lesion, respectively...

Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is a clonal disease that arises from the expansion of mutated haematopoietic stem cells. In a spectrum of myeloid disorders ranging from clonal haematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP) to secondary acute myeloid leukaemia (sAML), MDS is distinguished by the presence of peripheral blood cytopenias, dysplastic haematopoietic differentiation and the absence of features that define acute leukaemia. More than 50 recurrently mutated genes are involved in the pathogenesis of MDS, including genes that encode proteins involved in pre-mRNA splicing, epigenetic regulation and transcription...

For decades, developing hematopoietic cells have been strictly compartmentalized into a small population of multipotent self-renewing hematopoietic stem cells, multipotent hematopoietic progenitor cells that are undergoing commitment to myeloid or lymphoid fates, and unipotent precursor cells that mature towards peripheral blood and immune cells. Recent studies, however, have provided a battery of findings that cannot be explained by this "classical" hierarchical model for the architecture of hematopoiesis...

The Hippo pathway is involved in several biological processes in both flies and mammals. Recent studies have shown that the Hippo pathway regulates Drosophila's haematopoiesis; however, understanding of its role in mammalian haematopoiesis is still limited. In flies, deletion of the Hippo component gene, Warts, affects crystal cell differentiation. We explored the role of the Hippo pathway in human haematopoiesis focusing on megakaryopoiesis. To investigate the role of LATS1/2 (a mammalian homolog of Warts) in human megakaryoblastic cell differentiation and platelet formation, megakaryoblastic cell (MEG-01) line was used as a model to gain insight into mechanism of the Hippo pathway in mammalian megakaryopoiesis...

OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Transplantation-mediated alloimmune thrombocytopenia (TMAT) occurs when leukocytes transferred in a donor organ from a patient with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), mount a response against recipient platelets. We present the first fatal case of TMAT following liver transplantation and review its aetiology and treatment. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: The liver donor had ITP and died from an intracranial haemorrhage. The recipient platelet count fell to 2 × 10(9)/l on post-operative day 2...

Haematopoietic stem cell (HSC) gene therapy has demonstrated potential to treat many diseases. However, current state of the art requires sophisticated ex vivo gene transfer in a dedicated Good Manufacturing Practices facility, limiting availability. An automated process would improve the availability and standardized manufacture of HSC gene therapy. Here, we develop a novel program for semi-automated cell isolation and culture equipment to permit complete benchtop generation of gene-modified CD34(+) blood cell products for transplantation...

Hematological disorders like myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) may arise due to cumulative dysregulation of various signalling pathways controlling proliferation, differentiation, maturation and apoptosis of bone marrow cells. This devastating bone marrow condition can be due to consequential abnormalities in haematopoiesis as well as its supportive microenvironment. Although mutations related to JAK/STAT pathway are common in myeloproliferative neoplasms, further studies are required to fully explore the myelodysplastic scenario regarding the concerned pathway...

Mechanisms of haematopoietic and cardiac patterning remain poorly understood. Here we show that the BMP and Wnt signalling pathways are integrated in an endoglin (Eng)-dependent manner in cardiac and haematopoietic lineage specification. Eng is expressed in early mesoderm and marks both haematopoietic and cardiac progenitors. In the absence of Eng, yolk sacs inappropriately express the cardiac marker, Nkx2.5. Conversely, high levels of Eng in vitro and in vivo increase haematopoiesis and inhibit cardiogenesis...

Stem cells are fundamental to human life and offer great therapeutic potential, yet their biology remains incompletely - or in cases even poorly - understood. The field of stem cell biology has grown substantially in recent years due to a combination of experimental and theoretical contributions: the experimental branch of this work provides data in an ever-increasing number of dimensions, while the theoretical branch seeks to determine suitable models of the fundamental stem cell processes that these data describe...

BACKGROUND: Leukaemia is an aggressive cancer of haematopoiesis. Despite increasing treatment success, the relapse rate is still high. Natural killer (NK) cells play a key role in the immune response to malignancies; thus, it is conceivable that NK cell-based immunotherapy may control relapses, while extending the disease-free survival. In our study, we investigated whether cryopreserved NK cells are able to kill the leukaemic K562 cell line, the necessity of IL-2 co-application and the association of activation marker expression (NKp44, NKG2D and CD25) with cytotoxic potential...

Aberrant stem cell-like gene regulatory networks are a feature of leukaemogenesis. The ETS-related gene (ERG), an important regulator of normal haematopoiesis, is also highly expressed in T-ALL and acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). However, the transcriptional regulation of ERG in leukaemic cells remains poorly understood. In order to discover transcriptional regulators of ERG, we employed a quantitative mass spectrometry-based method to identify factors binding the 321 bp ERG +85 stem cell enhancer region in MOLT-4 T-ALL and KG-1 AML cells...

Clonal haematopoiesis is thought to be a rare condition that increases in frequency with age and predisposes individuals to haematological malignancy. Recent studies, utilizing next-generation sequencing (NGS), observed haematopoietic clones in 10% of 70-year olds and rarely in younger individuals. However, these studies could only detect common haematopoietic clones->0.02 variant allele fraction (VAF)-due to the error rate of NGS. To identify and characterize clonal mutations below this threshold, here we develop methods for targeted error-corrected sequencing, which enable the accurate detection of clonal mutations as rare as 0...

Progress of age-related hematopoietic diseases such as myelodysplastic syndrome has previously been linked to enhanced levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2) was found to reduce mitochondrial ROS production through uncoupling of the respiratory chain. The impact of UCP2 loss and elevated ROS on hematopoiesis during aging has not yet been investigated. In this study, UCP2 knockout mice were analyzed at aging stages of 3, 12, and 24 months with respect to oxidative and energy status of bone marrow cells...

Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML)-initiating cells (CICs) express the hybrid oncoprotein BCR-ABL at the highest levels compared to their differentiated progeny but fail to expand at the same rate as downstream leukemic myeloid cells. Moreover, the primitive stem cell clone that originates the indolent CML chronic phase (CP) remains almost invariant as the disease evolves to a fatal blast crisis (BC). Compared to their healthy counterpart, the most dormant BCR-ABL+ CICs show the tendency to remain in a somewhat unusual 'proliferative quiescence', i...

Children with constitutional trisomy 21 (Down syndrome (DS)) have a unique predisposition to develop myeloid leukaemia of Down syndrome (ML-DS). This disorder is preceded by a transient neonatal preleukaemic syndrome, transient abnormal myelopoiesis (TAM). TAM and ML-DS are caused by co-operation between trisomy 21, which itself perturbs fetal haematopoiesis and acquired mutations in the key haematopoietic transcription factor gene GATA1. These mutations are found in almost one third of DS neonates and are frequently clinically and haematologcially 'silent'...
