Targeting Cell Adhesion in CALM-AF10 Transformed Leukemia

The role of the bone marrow microenvironment and the bidirectional nature of interactions between leukemic cells and the stromal components of the bone marrow have been increasingly recognized as important elements in controlling cell proliferation, quiescence, and chemoresistance in aggressive leukemias. We have identified an increase in the adhesive phenotype of cells transformed withCALM-AF10, with a concomitant increase in expression of CXCR4 and ITGA4, both of which are key mediators of cell-stroma adhesion. In this project, we are investigating the mechanistic nature of these changes and whether they can be targeted to therapeutic effect.
