miR-194-5p/BCLAF1 deregulation in AML tumorigenesis.

Leukemia 2017 11 20;31(11):2315-2325. Epub 2017 Feb 20.

Institute of Genetics and Biophysics, CNR, Naples, Italy.

Deregulation of epigenetic mechanisms, including microRNA, contributes to leukemogenesis and drug resistance by interfering with cancer-specific molecular pathways. Here, we show that the balance between miR-194-5p and its newly discovered target BCL2-associated transcription factor 1 (BCLAF1) regulates differentiation and survival of normal hematopoietic progenitors. In acute myeloid leukemias this balance is perturbed, locking cells into an immature, potentially 'immortal' state. Read More
