The Philadelphia chromosome (Ph1) is a translocation between chromosomes 9 and 22 that is found in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and a subset of acute lymphocytic leukemia patients (ALL). In CML, this results in the expression of a chimeric 8.5-kilobase BCR-ABL transcript that encodes the P210BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase. The Ph1 chromosome in ALL expresses a distinct ABL-derived 7-kilobase messenger RNA that encodes the P185ALL-ABL protein. Since the expression of different oncogene products may play a role in the distinctive presentation of Ph1-positive ALL versus CML, it is necessary to understand the molecular basis for the expression of P185ALL-ABL. Both P210BCR-ABL and P185ALL-ABL are recognized by an antiserum directed to BCR determinants in the amino-terminal region of both proteins. Antisera to BCR determinants proximal to the BCR-ABL junction in CML immunoprecipitated P210BCR-ABL but not P185ALL-ABL. Nucleotide sequence analysis of complementary DNA clones made from RNA from the ...
The (9;22) translocation which produces the Philadelphia (Ph1) chromosome activates the abl oncogene from chromosome 9 by recombination with the bcr gene from chromosome 22. This fusion gene is transcribed into a new 8.5-kilobase chimeric mRNA which is translated into a novel Mr 210,000 fusion protein which has a protein tyrosine kinase activity that is greatly increased in comparison to the activity of the normal abl protein. Studies from this laboratory and others have shown that virtually all patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia have this new bcr/abl fusion gene. In contrast to these findings in chronic myelogenous leukemia, a small number of patients with Ph1(+) acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) have been studied and were found to lack the bcr/abl fusion gene [bcr(-)], but to have a new activation of abl, by recombination with an as yet undetermined region on chromosome 22. In this study, nine adults with Ph1(+)-ALL have been examined for evidence of a bcr/abl fusion gene. Of the nine ...
The t(9;22)(q34;q11) chromosomal translocation is the most frequent cytogenetic abnormality found in human leukemias where it can be detected in ∼95% of patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and in 30% to 40% of pre-B and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (1-3). This translocation results in the fusion of the BCR and ABL genes, leading to the expression of a BCR-ABL fusion protein with constitutively active ABL tyrosine kinase activity (1, 4). BCR-ABL-induced signaling is known to activate Ras-dependent signaling, phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase/Akt, and the Jak/STAT pathway (5). Additionally, BCR-ABL activates the transcription factor nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) at least partly in a manner dependent on Ras (6). Suppression of NF-κB activation by expression of the so-called superrepressor form of IκBα blocked BCR-ABL-dependent xenograft tumor formation (6). Others (7) have also observed that NF-κB is activated by BCR-ABL in manner dependent on Ras. Furthermore, that study reported ...
ABL1 gene translocations can be seen in precursor T-acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). The typical translocation partner is the NUP214 gene. BCR-ABL translocations are relatively rare in this entity. Furthermore, while there have been unique patterns of amplification noted among the NUP214-ABL fusion genes, there have been few such reports among cases with BCR-ABL fusion genes. Here we report a unique case of a 44-year old patient with T-ALL in which the blasts demonstrated a derivative chromosome 9 involving a 9;22 translocation and a dicentric Philadelphia chromosome 22 with a homogeneously staining region at the interface of the 9;22 translocation, leading to BCR-ABL1 gene amplification. Fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) showed abnormal BCR/ABL1 fusions with the BCR-ABL1 gene amplification in 48% of the interphase cells analyzed. The translocation was confirmed by SNP array. We present a novel derivative chromosome 9 that shows BCR-ABL gene fusion along with a dicentric Philadelphia

Background Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have demonstrated success in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in patients that express BCR-ABL rearrangements (Philadelphia chromosome [Ph]). The current study aimed to assess the efficacy of TKIs and prognostic factors in the treatment of adults with Ph+-ALL. Methods In this multicenter retrospective study, the relationship between Ph+-ALL and treatment outcomes among Chinese patients receiving TKI-containing induction/consolidation chemotherapy was examined. A total of 86 Ph+-ALL patients were included and followed for 3.85 (0.43-9.30) years. Overall survival (OS) and event-free survival (EFS) were analyzed. Results A total of 86 Ph+-ALL patients (40 females and 46 males; median age: 34.0 years) were enrolled, including those with BCR/ABL transcripts 190 (n = 52), 210 (n = 25), and 230 (n = 2); BCR/ABL isoform determination was not available for 7 patients. Mortality was influenced
Mice. To generate the double-transgenic Scl/Tal1-tTA × BCR/ABL strain (2), SCL-tTA mice (strain no. 017722) and TRE-BCR/ABL mice (strain no. 006202) were obtained from the Jackson Laboratory. Doxycycline hyclate (Sigma-Aldrich) was administered in the drinking water at a concentration of 0.2 mg/mL to mating mice and newborn pups to suppress BCR/ABL expression. At 4 weeks of age, doxycycline was withdrawn to induce BCR/ABL expression in some mice. As previously described, embryos from mice bearing a constitutive deletion of Ptn (61) were obtained from the RIKEN Institute by the Jackson Laboratory and rederived in a C57BL/6 background. The Scl/Tal1-tTA and TRE-BCR/ABL mice were backcrossed 8 generations into the PTN-/- strain. As a result, all experimental mice described were in a C57BL/6 background. Sperm from PTN-GFP mice (Tg[Ptn-EGFP]HJ32Gsat MGI no. 4847351) developed as part of the GENSAT Project Rockefeller University was obtained from the MMRRC Repository and the strain was rederived in a ...

Leukemias expressing constitutively activated mutants of ABL1 tyrosine kinase (BCR-ABL1, TEL-ABL1, NUP214-ABL1) usually contain at least 1 normal ABL1 allele. Because oncogenic and normal ABL1 kinases may exert opposite effects on cell behavior, we examined the role of normal ABL1 in leukemias induced by oncogenic ABL1 kinases. BCR-ABL1-Abl1(-/-) cells generated highly aggressive chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)-blast phase-like disease in mice compared with less malignant CML-chronic phase-like disease from BCR-ABL1-Abl1(+/+) cells. Additionally, loss of ABL1 stimulated proliferation and expansion of BCR-ABL1 murine leukemia stem cells, arrested myeloid differentiation, inhibited genotoxic stress-induced apoptosis, and facilitated accumulation of chromosomal aberrations. Conversely, allosteric stimulation of ABL1 kinase activity enhanced the antileukemia effect of ABL1 tyrosine kinase inhibitors (imatinib and ponatinib) in human and murine leukemias expressing BCR-ABL1, TEL-ABL1, and NUP214-ABL1.
Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is a malignant hematopoietic stem cell disorder that is invariably associated with the expression of the p210 Bcr-Abl fusion protein. Although the deregulated, Abl-encoded tyrosine kinase activity is essential for disease progression, several studies have shown that Bcr encoded sequences are also necessary for p210 Bcr-Abl-mediated leukemogenesis. We have identified a non-classical ubiquitin binding domain (UBD) within the NH2-terminal Bcr sequences of p210 Bcr-Abl. Deletion of the UBD (p210 Bcr-Abl(ΔUBD)) does not impair the auto-or trans-kinase activity of p210 Bcr-Abl, nor does it impair the ability of p210 Bcr-Abl to interact with Grb2 and activate Erk1/2 signaling. Although β-catenin has been previously identified as a binding partner for Bcr and Bcr-Abl, p210 Bcr-Abl(ΔUBD) does not interact with β-catenin. Treatment with an E1 inhibitor impairs the interaction between β-catenin and p210 Bcr-Abl, suggesting that the interaction is ubiquitin-dependent. ...
Request Service. Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) and Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). This is a test aimed at detecting and monitoring minimal residual disease in CML and ALL. This assay detects and quantitates cells that express the bcr-abl fusion transcripts resulting from either the major (p210) or minor (p190) breakpoints originating from the t(9;22) chromosomal translocation.This is a real-time TaqMan PCR assay, which expresses a patients results as a bcr-abl to abl ratio. Although this test can be used to diagnose CML and ALL, its best value is to follow bcr-abl/abl ratios in patients undergoing pharmacological therapy.. JAK2. PML-RARA. ...
Dormant leukemia stem cells (LSC) promote therapeutic resistance and leukemic progression as a result of unbridled activation of stem cell gene expression programs. Thus, we hypothesized that 1) deregulation of the hedgehog (Hh) stem cell self-renewal and cell cycle regulatory pathway would promote dormant human LSC generation and 2) that PF-04449913, a clinical antagonist of the GLI2 transcriptional activator, smoothened (SMO), would enhance dormant human LSC eradication. To test these postulates, whole transcriptome RNA sequencing (RNA-seq), microarray, qRT-PCR, stromal co-culture, confocal fluorescence microscopic, nanoproteomic, serial transplantation and cell cycle analyses were performed on FACS purified normal, chronic phase (CP) chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), blast crisis (BC) phase CML progenitors with or without PF-04449913 treatment. Notably, RNA-seq analyses revealed that Hh pathway and cell cycle regulatory gene overexpression correlated with leukemic progression. While lentivirally

To further understand mechanisms mediating chemotherapy resistance, we identified 556 differentially regulated genes in HL-60 cells stably expressing p210BCR-ABL versus those expressing an empty vector using cDNA macro- and oligonucleotide microarrays. These BCR-ABL-regulated gene products play diverse roles in cellular function including apoptosis, cell cycle regulation, intracellular signaling, transcription, and cellular ...
The break on chromosome 9 involves a gene called Abl and the break on chromosome 22 involves a gene called Bcr. The Bcr and Abl genes combine to make the CML causing gene called the Bcr-Abl gene. There doesnt seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why this occurs; it just does. This Bcr-Abl gene produces a dysfunctional protein called "BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase"; this leads to the abnormal regulation of cell growth and survival and is responsible for CML. Think of it as a faucet that is constantly in the on position. It is on and making immature white cells that are crowding out the good white cells as well as the red cells and platelets. ...
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) results from hematopoietic stem cell transformation by the BCR-ABL kinase. Despite the success of BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in treating CML patients, leukemia stem cells (LSCs) resist elimination and persist as a major barrier to cure. Previous studies suggest that overexpression of the sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) deacetylase may contribute to LSC maintenance in CML. Here, by genetically deleting SIRT1 in transgenic CML mice, we definitively demonstrated an important role for SIRT1 in leukemia development. We identified a previously unrecognized role for SIRT1 in mediating increased mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation in CML LSCs. We showed that mitochondrial alterations were kinase independent and that TKI treatment enhanced inhibition of CML hematopoiesis in SIRT1-deleted mice. We further showed that the SIRT1 substrate PGC-1α contributed to increased oxidative phosphorylation and TKI resistance in CML LSCs. These results reveal an important role for ...
We used specific antisera and immunohistochemical methods to investigate the subcellular localization and expression of Bcr, Abl, and Bcr-Abl proteins in leukemic cell lines and in fresh human leukemic and normal samples at various stages of myeloid differentiation. Earlier studies of the subcellula …
Bosutinib is a synthetic quinolone derivative and dual kinase inhibitor that targets both Abl and Src kinases with potential antineoplastic activity. Unlike imatinib, bosutinib inhibits the autophosphorylation of both Abl and Src kinases, resulting in inhibition of cell growth and apoptosis. Because of the dual mechanism of action, this agent may have activity in resistant CML disease, other myeloid malignancies and solid tumors. Abl kinase is upregulated in the presence of the abnormal Bcr-abl fusion protein which is commonly associated with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Overexpression of specific Src kinases is also associated with the imatinib-resistant CML phenotype.

N2 - We introduced SNX2-ABL1, a novel ABL1-related chimeric transcript lacks SH3 and SH2 domains, into murine Ba/F3 cells and compared their function with that of BCR-ABL1. After the expression of SNX2-ABL1 proteins, Ba/F3 cells acquired an ability to proliferate in an IL-3-independent manner. Upon treatment with both imatinib and dasatinib, BCR-ABL1-expressing Ba/F3 cells underwent rapid apoptosis, whereas SNX2-ABL1-expressing Ba/F3 cells showed poorer sensitivity toward these TKIs and could proliferate in the presence of a low dose of dasatinib. Therefore, other TKIs with a more selective effect against this chimeric kinase should be ...
The ABL proto-oncogene encodes a cytoplasmic and nuclear protein tyrosine kinase that has been implicated in processes of cell differentiation, cell division, cell adhesion, and stress response. Mutations in the ABL gene are associated with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), where it is activated by being translocated within the BCR (breakpoint cluster region) gene on chromosome 22. The BCR-ABL transcript encodes a tyrosine kinase, which activates mediators of the cell cycle regulation system, leading to a clonal myeloproliferative disorder.

Ponatinib is a novel Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase inhibitor that is especially effective against the T315I mutation for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia. FDA approved on December 14, 2012.
Bcr-Abl is an oncogenic fusion protein which expression enhances tumorigenesis, and has been highly associated with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Acquired drug resistance in mutant Bcr-Abl has enhanced pathogenesis with the use of single therapy agents such as Nilotinib. Moreover, allosteric targeting has been identified to consequentially inhibit Bcr-Abl activity, which led to the recent development of ABL-001 (asciminib) that selectively binds the myristoyl pocket. Experimental studies have revealed that the combination of Nilotinib and ABL-001 induced a "bent" conformation in the C-terminal helix of Bcr-Abl; a benchmark of inhibition, thereby exhibiting a greater potency in the treatment of CML, surmounting the setbacks of drug resistance, disease regression and relapse ...

Flumatinib, also known as HHGV678, is a selective inhibitor of BCR-ABL/PDGFR/KIT. Flumatinib is currently in Phase I clinical trials in China for the treatment of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Flumatinib effectively overcomes drug resistance of certain KIT mutants. Flumatinib mesylate can reduce the expression of C-MYC, HIF-1 α and VEGF in U266 cell line in a time- and dose-dependent manners.

Finding the right BCR-ABL1 tyrosine kinase inhibitor: a case report of successful treatment of a patient with chronic myeloid leukemia and a V299L mutation using nilotinib.
What is PCR?. PCR is short for "polymerase chain reaction." It is the main type of test used in CML to measure your response to treatment. Its also used to test for other things, like viruses after a bone marrow transplant.. In CML, a PCR test is done in a lab, using a sample of your blood. The test finds the amount of genetic "blueprints" for the BCR-ABL gene that causes CML. A PCR test thus measures the residual (remaining) disease in your blood.. Why should you know your PCR?. Because your PCR number can be compared to the results from your earlier PCR tests, it helps give you an idea of how you are responding to treatment over time. Your doctor can explain how this number compares to where it should be, so its important to ask about it if you dont know it.. How often should I have the test?. Most experts recommend that you should have a PCR test performed every three months during the early stages of your treatment. Once your BCR-ABL levels have begun to drop, indicating a good response ...
Cytogenetic and FISH analysis of bone marrow showed that most patients had a decrease in the fraction of BCR-ABL-or Philadelphia-positive cells, though typically marrow remained positive, often in a fairly high percentage of cells. Eventually some values fell within the normal range. "If we look with RT-PCR, which is more sensitive," Dr. Peterson says, "many were still positive for BCR-ABL." Patients who remained positive for BCR-ABL later progressed; some developed accelerated phase or blast crisis. "So we dont know that imatinib can cure CML," Dr. Peterson says. "That is our hope. And we see such good responses that we think survival will be lengthened. But we dont yet know that clearly." However, she adds, this study was done in pretreated patients. Similar studies in newly diagnosed patients ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Nilotinib. T2 - A novel Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase inhibitor for the treatment of leukemias. AU - Jabbour, Elias. AU - El Ahdab, Samih. AU - Cortes, Jorge. AU - Kantarjian, Hagop. PY - 2008/7/1. Y1 - 2008/7/1. N2 - The successful introduction of the tyrosine kinase inhibitors has initiated a new era in the management of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Imatinib mesilate therapy has significantly improved the prognosis of CML. A minority of patients in chronic-phase CML - and more patients in advanced phases - are resistant to imatinib, or develop resistance during treatment. This is attributed, in 40 - 50% of cases, to the development of mutations in the Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase domain that impair imatinib binding. Nilotinib (Tasigna®) is a novel potent selective oral kinase inhibitor. Preclinical and clinical investigations demonstrate nilotinib effectively overcomes imatinib resistance, and has induced high rates of hematologic and cytogenetic responses in CML post imatinib ...
In this retrospective analysis, fourteen/18 (78%) evaluable patients were found challenged with higher doses of IM (600-800 mg/day), with one return to CP and one transient CCyR after IM combined with chemotherapy, and 12 failures. Six patients (1 CP, 5 BC) were treated with dasatinib, and no difference in survival was seen between dasatinib-treated and non-treated patients (p=0.15). None of the patients received nilotinib. Additionally, 3 patients underwent allogeneic stem cell transplantation with 2 remaining alive at 1 and 14 months follow-up. Finally, at latest follow-up, overall survival since IM initiation (Figure 1B), however longer for CP (42.5 Mo.) was not statistically different than that for AP+BC (17.5 Mo., p=0.08) patients.. The onset of BCR-ABLT315I mutations during the treatment of CML with TKIs remains challenging, because this mutation is the most frequently identified in IM-treated patients6, and none of the TKIs clinically available to date4,5,6 retain any activity in vitro. ...
The BCR-ABL1 oncoprotein is found in a subset of patients with ALL carrying the Philadelphia chromosome. This translocation is the most common cytogenetic abnormality in adults, with ALL occurring in 25% of patients (33). BCR-ABL1 defines a high-risk group and, as such, patients receive intensive chemotherapy in combination with ABL TKIs and are considered for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Despite the great success with combination of high-dose ABL TKIs and intensive chemotherapy, there are still drawbacks that need to be addressed. Above all, 40% of patients, even with HSCT, have relapse of the disease. Furthermore, it is not clear whether responsive patients without HSCT cannot have relapse of the disease, as there is evidence that BCR-ABL1-positive leukemia stem cells remain present in the patients bone marrow even after years of therapy. Therefore, it is necessary to define targets in BCR-ABL1-positive leukemia stem cells that may be candidates for new treatment ...
Telomeres are specific nucleoprotein structures at the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes. Telomeres and telomere-associated proteins maintain genome stability by protecting the ends of chromosomes from fusion and degradation. In normal somatic cells, the length of the telomeres gradually becomes shortened with cell division. In tumor cells, the shortening of telomeres length is accelerated under the increased proliferation pressure. However, it will be maintained at an extremely short length as the result of activation of telomerase. Significantly shortened telomeres, activation of telomerase, and altered expression of telomere-associated proteins are common features of various hematologic malignancies and are related with progression or chemotherapy resistance in these diseases. In patients who have received hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), the telomere length and the telomerase activity of the engrafted donor cells have a significant influence on HSCT outcomes. Transplantation-related
This study is characterizing the pharmacokinetics of vincristine using two different cohorts of patients. The first cohort includes patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) that are Bcr-Abl positive. This cohort of patients will receive vincristine along with imatinib in the induction chemotherapy regimen. The second cohort includes patients with ALL that are Bcr-Abl negative. This cohort of patients will receive vincristine without imatinib in the induction chemotherapy regimen. This study involves blood draws beginning on day 7 of the treatment protocol and these samples will be analyzed for pharmacokinetic parameters.. Imatinib and vincristine are both metabolized by the hepatic CYP 450 enzyme system. Imatinib is an inhibitor of the system and co-administration of imatinib and vincristine has the potential to increase the blood level of vincristine. This could explain the increased level of neurotoxicity that is currently being seen with the co-administration of these two agents in ...
0.000). Patients having highly positive value may grow some kinase domain mutations causing resistance to prescribed TKI and have evolved into accelerated (AP) or relapse phases (data not shown).. The patients who had achieved the complete cytogenetic response (CCYR) within first 6 months and currently still in CCYR and surviving were also analyzed. Those patients who had not achieved the cytogenetic remission within first 6 months did not show good prognosis. Some of them achieved complete response, but some of them were in AP phase. The BCR-ABL1 fusion protein assay showed considerable consistency with RQ-PCR and cytogenetic results. Studying molecular response groups (Table 6), we have found a distinct difference in MFI values such as complete molecular response (CMR) patients are also negative to be detected for BCR-ABL protein by fluorescence based flow cytometry assay (mean MFI 1.24). Mean MFI of mMR group, being 2.61, indicates clearly the difference in response levels.. The discrepancy ...
Mutations in the ABL1 gene are associated with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). In CML, the gene is activated by being translocated within the BCR (breakpoint cluster region) gene on chromosome 22. This new fusion gene, BCR-ABL, encodes an unregulated, cytoplasm-targeted tyrosine kinase that allows the cells to proliferate without being regulated by cytokines. This, in turn, allows the cell to become cancerous. This gene is a partner in a fusion gene with the BCR gene in the Philadelphia chromosome, a characteristic abnormality in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and rarely in some other leukemia forms. The BCR-ABL transcript encodes a tyrosine kinase, which activates mediators of the cell cycle regulation system, leading to a clonal myeloproliferative disorder. The BCR-ABL protein can be inhibited by various small molecules. One such inhibitor is imatinib mesylate, which occupies the tyrosine kinase domain and inhibits BCR-ABLs influence on the cell cycle. Second generation BCR-ABL ...

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a clonal myeloproliferative disorder of a pluripotent stem cell. The natural history of CML has a triphasic clinical course comprising of an initial chronic phase (CP), which is characterized by expansion of functionally normal myeloid cells, followed by an accelerated phase (AP) and finally a more aggressive blast phase (BP), with loss of terminal differentiation capacity. On the cellular level, CML is associated with a specific chromosome abnormality, the t(9; 22) reciprocal translocation that forms the Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome. The Ph chromosome is the result of a molecular rearrangement between the c-ABL proto-oncogene on chromosome 9 and the BCR (breakpoint cluster region) gene on chromosome 22. The BCR/ABL fusion gene encodes p210 BCR/ABL, an oncoprotein, which, unlike the normal p145 c-Abl, has constitutive tyrosine kinase activity and is predominantly localized in the cytoplasm. While fusion of c-ABL and BCR is believed to be the primary cause of the ...
Dr. Radich explored the clinical decision-making regarding the selection of therapies for CML and emphasized that response milestones as listed in the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines) for CML should guide the way. For upfront therapy, Dr. Radich noted that one could start with either imatinib or one of the newer agents, based on clinical features (such as the Sokal score), comorbities, and treatment goals. Regardless of the first agent used, it is important to give initial therapy a fair trial before considering it ineffective, he added.. The first milestone is the 3-month BCR-ABL/ABL percentage. According to the NCCN Guidelines, if the BCR-ABL/ABL is less than 10% (indicative of a lack of response), it may be time to consider a second-generation agent. However, the European LeukemiaNet (ELN) guidelines are a bit more patient: if the BCR-ABL/ABL is less than 10% at 6 months, they suggest considering a switch to another agent, noted Dr. Radich.. "Frankly, there are ...
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) results from hematopoietic stem cell transformation by the BCR-ABL kinase. Despite the success of BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in treating CML patients, leukemia stem cells (LSCs) resist elimination and persist as a major barrier to cure. Previous studies suggest that overexpression of the sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) deacetylase may contribute to LSC maintenance in CML. Here, by genetically deleting SIRT1 in transgenic CML mice, we definitively demonstrated an important role for SIRT1 in leukemia development. We identified a previously unrecognized role for SIRT1 in mediating increased mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation in CML LSCs. We showed that mitochondrial alterations were kinase independent and that TKI treatment enhanced inhibition of CML hematopoiesis in SIRT1-deleted mice. We further showed that the SIRT1 substrate PGC-1α contributed to increased oxidative phosphorylation and TKI resistance in CML LSCs. These results reveal an important role for ...

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a clonal myeloproliferative stem cell disease which is distinguished by an increased number of mature and immature granulocytes in peripheral blood, bone marrow, with increased granulocytopoiesis and splenomegaly. The disease is defined by the presence of the BCR-ABL fusion gene. This anomaly is probably necessary and sufficient for the development of chronic myeloid leukemia. ...
Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) is characterized by increased and unregulated growth of myeloid cells in the bone marrow and accumulation of these cells in the blood. Most CML is caused by a chromosomal abnormality that results in a fusion between Abl tyrosine kinase and BCR gene on chromosome 2, which results in a constitutively active tyrosine kinase. Most CMLs are treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) such as imatinib. Some forms of CML, however, are resistant to TKI treatment and proceed independent of BCR-Abl1 activity. A recent colloborative study utilizing Cellectas unique platform in paired imatinib-resistant and imatininb-sensitive K-562 CML cell lines to identify other genes whose knockdown might play a role in the survival of the imatinib-resistant cells. This loss-of-function shRNA library screen identified RAN and XPO1, which are components of the nucleocytoplasmic transport complex.. When these genes were knocked down and the cells were treated with imatinib, the cells were ...
Beginning with imatinib a decade ago, therapy based on targeted inhibition of the BCR-ABL kinase has greatly improved the prognosis for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. The recognition that some patients experience relapse due to resistance-conferring point mutations within BCR-ABL sparked the development of the second-generation ABL kinase inhibitors nilotinib and dasatinib. Collectively, these drugs target most resistant BCR-ABL mutants, with the exception of BCR-ABLT315I. A third wave of advances is now cresting in the form of ABL kinase inhibitors whose target profile encompasses BCR-ABLT315I. The leading third-generation clinical candidate for treatment-refractory CML, including patients with the T315I mutation, is ponatinib (AP24534), a pan-BCR-ABL inhibitor that has entered pivotal phase 2 testing. A second inhibitor with activity against the BCR-ABLT315I mutant, DCC-2036, is in phase 1 clinical evaluation. We provide an up-to-date synopsis of BCR-ABL signaling pathways, highlight ...
Imatinib mesylate is a small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor that was initially developed as a 2-phenylaminopyrimidine derivative specific for PDGFR. Imatinib was subsequently found to be a potent inhibitor of ABL kinases, including the BCR-ABL fusion protein generated as a result of the t(9;22) chromosomal translocation (Philadelphia chromosome) found in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), and was…. ...
The exchange of genetic information that produces the Philadelphia chromosome brings together two genes: the BCR (breakpoint cluster region) gene on chromosome 22 and the ABL (Ableson leukemia virus) gene on chromosome 9. The combination of these two genes into the single BCR-ABL gene results in the production of a protein that contributes to uncontrolled cell growth.. Initially in CML, there is a gradual increase in mature, abnormal myeloid cells in the bone marrow. These cells eventually spill into the blood and other organs, causing symptoms such as fatigue from anemia or an enlarged spleen. The increase in leukemic cell numbers occurs slowly at first and is referred to as the chronic phase, but these cells invariably begin to increase more rapidly and/or include less mature cells, resulting in the accelerated or blastic phase. In order to understand the best treatment options available for chronic myeloid leukemia, it is important to know the phase of leukemia, since all new treatment ...

Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is slow-progressing and associated with a specific genetic abnormality in the cell, called the Philadelphia chromosome.
The purpose of this study is to find out if multiple tyrosine kinase inhibitor resistant chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) or acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) can be treated with combination approach of Nilotinib with Ruxolitinib which may block alternative pathway besides BCR-ABL kinase inhibition in Ph positive leukemia, esp against JAK2-STAT5 pathway. First step is to define the dose of Ruxolitinib with fixed dose of Nilotinib which had been approved at the dose of 400mg bid for imatinib failed CML.. During phase I part of the study,dose escalations will be decided on the basis of DLTs observed hence the exact sample size could not be predicted with certainty but will range between 9-12 patients. Three patients will be enrolled per dose level. Accordingly 9 patients are expected to be enrolled. If a DLT is observed, 3 more patients will be enrolled at the dose level in which the DLT occurred.. The study will be conducted at multiple sites across Canada and enrollment will be competitive.

Ponatinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) that blocks the action of the BCR-ABL protein. It is only used in patients with CML if the other TKIs havent worked or if there is a T315I mutation (gene change) in the BCR-ABL protein. This mutation can occur in some CML patients and the mutation can prevent other TKIs from working. This drug can be used to treat: Chronic,

We have followed one patient with Philadelphia (Ph)-negative chronic myelogenous leukemia and identified an additional four patients from the literature who showed the rearrangement in the breakpoint cluster region (bcr) on chromosome 22 characteristic of Ph-positive chronic myelogenous leukemia. The clinical course of these five patients was similar to that of Ph-positive patients, with easily controlled leukocyte counts, a prolonged benign phase, and prolonged survival. Furthermore, we have shown, for the first time, that bcr rearrangement in Ph-negative chronic myelogenous leukemia can result in expression of the aberrant 210-kilodalton bcr-abl fusion protein, which has been strongly implicated in Ph-positive leukemogenesis. Research data pertaining to possible cytogenetic mechanisms leading to production of p210bcr-abl in the absence of the Ph chromosome are reviewed. Molecular analysis provides an important tool for classifying and predicting prognosis of some patients with Ph-negative ...

The aim of this study is to evaluate the long term survival outcomes in patients with Adult Philadelphia Chromosome Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Recent improvements in cell purification and transplantation techniques have contributed to the identification of cell populations known as tumor-initiating cells (TIC). This discovery has led to the cancer stem cell hierarchy concept, which holds that tumors are organized as a hierarchy of malignant tissues sustained by such TIC. However, this concept remains controversial. In this review, we examine recent advances in cancer stem cell research that have been generated from studies of Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome-positive leukemia. The abnormal Ph chromosome, which arises from a translocation creating the BCR-ABL1 fusion gene, is most commonly associated with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and precursor B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL). Examination of the pathophysiology of these diseases has provided interesting insights into not only the hierarchy of leukemia stem cells but also their clonal evolution. Both shared and unique regulatory mechanisms affecting normal and CML stem ...

Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) induce molecular remission in the majority of patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), but the persistence of CML stem cells hinders cure and necessitates indefinite TKI therapy. We report that CML stem cells upregulate the expression of pleiotrophin (PTN) and require cell-autonomous PTN signaling for CML pathogenesis in BCR/ABL+ mice. Constitutive PTN deletion substantially reduced the numbers of CML stem cells capable of initiating CML in vivo. Hematopoietic cell-specific deletion of PTN suppressed CML development in BCR/ABL+ mice, suggesting that cell-autonomous PTN signaling was necessary for CML disease evolution. Mechanistically, PTN promoted CML stem cell survival and TKI resistance via induction of Jun and the unfolded protein response. Human CML cells were also dependent on cell-autonomous PTN signaling, and anti-PTN antibody suppressed human CML colony formation and CML repopulation in vivo. Our results suggest that targeted inhibition of PTN ...
BCR-ABL is known as the most common translocation in the myeloproliferative (MPD) disorder chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML); it is the first leukemia to be described and associated with a consistent cytogenetic abnormality, termed the Philadelphia chromosome (Ph1). Ph1 is a shortened chromosome 22 that is the consequence of a reciprocal translocation between chromosomes 9 and 22, t(9;22)(q34;q11). BCR-ABL is known to display constitutively active tyrosine kinase activity that leads to the recruitment of downstream effectors of cell proliferation and survival, via several adapter proteins (e.g., GRB2, GAB2, CRKL.) and signaling pathways (e.g., RAS, PI3K, JAK STAT, PDk2-NFkB), all thought to contribute to the pathogenesis of CML. CML, essentially consists of 3 different phases based on disease severity; namely Chronic Phase (CP-AML), Accelerated Phase (AP-CML) and blast crisis (BC-CML). Imatinib, a small molecule ABL kinase inhibitor has been highly effective in treating chronic phase (CP) CML ...

We have read with interest the early release paper by Neelakantan et al. regarding platelet dysfunction associated with ponatinib in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) resistant to multiple tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) therapy.1 The authors have shown a prolonged closure time with PFA 100 (a sensitive measure for primary hemostasis)2 in 5 patients with CML resistant to TKI who had been receiving ponatinib for at least two weeks without interruption. Although none of these patients developed clinical bleeding during the study period, the authors concluded that ponatinib may inhibit platelet function, suggesting that physicians should be vigilant when patients with ponatinib are facing any hemostatic challenges.1. To define the clinical implication of this finding on the risk of bleeding among CML patients receiving ponatinib, we reviewed the medical records of 80 patients diagnosed with chronic phase CML (CML-CP) according to previously described criteria and treated with ponatinib ...

Crk-like protein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CRKL gene. v-CRK avian sarcoma virus CT10-homolog-like contains one SH2 domain and two SH3 domains. CRKL has been shown to activate the RAS and JUN kinase signaling pathways and transform fibroblasts in a RAS-dependent fashion. It is a substrate of the BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase and plays a role in fibroblast transformation by BCR-ABL. In addition, CRKL has oncogenic potential. CrkL together with Crk participates in the Reelin signaling cascade downstream of DAB1. CRKL has been shown to interact with: Abl gene, BCAR1, BCR gene, CBLB, CD117, CD34, Cbl gene, Dock2, EPOR, GAB1, GAB2, INPP5D, MAP4K1, MAP4K5, NEDD9, PIK3R2, Paxillin RAPGEF1, RICS, STAT5A, Syk, and WAS.

Background: Imatinib is failing as a first line treatment in more than 40% of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients in Qatar. We thus investigated ABL1 kinase domain mutations and additional chromosomal abnormalities (ACAs) as underlying mechanisms to explain this high rate of treatment failure. Methods: Between November 2006 and December 2011, all CML patients in Qatar were studied for BCR-ABL1 kinase domain mutations and ACAs. Total RNA was extracted and cDNA was produced via reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). PCR was used with special precautions to avoid amplification of wild type ABL1; the ABL1 kinase domain was then screened for mutations by direct DNA sequencing technology to detect the emergence of mutant clone. Cytogenetic analysis of bone marrow (BM) metaphases and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) of peripheral blood (PB) and BM interphases were performed according to standard protocols. European Leukemia Net (ELN) response criteria were employed to identify
In chronic myeloid leukemia BCR-ABL1 mutations and activation of additional pro-oncogenic pathways cause therapy resistance. Drug combinations covering a broad range of targets may overcome resistance.We investigated a compound that inhibits proliferation and survival of tyrosine kinase inhibitor-resistant BCR-ABL1+ cell lines. Succesful drug-combinations blocked multiple signalling cascades and molecules, including STAT3 and STAT5.
Targeting therapy-persistent LSCs is a critical priority for improved treatment of CML.33,34 However, the LSC population is heterogeneous, consisting of a mixture of leukemic cells with differences in TKI sensitivity as well as residual healthy stem cells and progenitors.10,31,35 Single-cell gene expression analysis offers the possibility to identify distinct subpopulations within the stem cell population in CML while directly discriminating between leukemic and normal cells based on BCR-ABL expression. This is of particular importance in remission samples where only a minority of the stem cell population is leukemic. Here, we used qPCR technology for a preselected set of 95 genes, which we regard as a technically robust alternative36 (supplemental Figure 2) to genome-wide approaches that are likely confounded by technical noise. Analysis of ,2000 Lin−CD34+CD38−/low single cells afforded the identification of 7 molecularly distinct subpopulations within the stem cell population. The HSC ...
K562 cells were the first human immortalised myelogenous leukemia line to be established. K562 cells are of the erythroleukemia type, and the line is derived from a 53-year-old female chronic myelogenous leukemia patient in blast crisis. The cells are non-adherent and rounded, are positive for the bcr:abl fusion gene, and bear some proteomic resemblance to both undifferentiated granulocytes and erythrocytes. In culture they exhibit much less clumping than many other suspension lines, presumably due to the downregulation of surface adhesion molecules by bcr:abl. However, another study suggests that bcr:abl over-expression may actually increase cell adherence to cell culture plastic. K562 cells can spontaneously develop characteristics similar to early-stage erythrocytes, granulocytes and monocytes and are easily killed by natural killer cells as they lack the MHC complex required to inhibit NK activity. They also lack any trace of Epstein-Barr virus and other herpesviruses. In addition to the ...
CRKL Full-Length MS Protein Standard (NP_005198), Labeled with [U- 13C6, 15N4]-L-Arginine and [U- 13C6, 15N2]-L-Lysine, was produced in human 293 cells (HEK293) with fully chemically defined cell culture medium to obtain incorporation efficiency at Creative-Proteomics. This gene encodes a protein kinase containing SH2 and SH3 (src homology) domains which has been shown to activate the RAS and JUN kinase signaling pathways and transform fibroblasts in a RAS-dependent fashion. It is a substrate of the BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase, plays a role in fibroblast transformation by BCR-ABL, and may be oncogenic.

Increased understanding of the precise molecular mechanisms involved in cell survival and cell death signaling pathways offers the promise of harnessing these molecules to eliminate cancer cells without damaging normal cells. Tyrosine kinase oncoproteins promote the genesis of leukemias through both increased cell proliferation and inhibition of apoptotic cell death. Although tyrosine kinase inhibitors, such as the BCR-ABL inhibitor imatinib, have demonstrated remarkable efficacy in the clinic, drug-resistant leukemias emerge in some patients because of either the acquisition of point mutations or amplification of the tyrosine kinase, resulting in a poor long-term prognosis. Here, we exploit the molecular mechanisms of caspase activation and tyrosine kinase/adaptor protein signaling to forge a unique approach for selectively killing leukemic cells through the forcible induction of apoptosis. We have engineered caspase variants that can directly be activated in response to BCR-ABL. Because we ...
