A Two-Gene Marker for the Two-Tiered Innate Immune Response in COVID-19 Patients
The activation patterns of this two-tiered innate immune response represented by IFI27 and S100A12 were explored based on 1421 samples from 17 transcriptome datasets derived from the blood of COVID-19 patients and relevant controls.
[Haematologica] 301 patients with a median age 60 years were enrolled. Of them, 287 and 274 patients collected ≥2 and ≥4×106 CD34+ cells/kg, respectively, with a median of 9.9×106 CD34+ cells/kg collected.
[EMBO Journal] The authors provide an in-depth review of the metabolic and epigenetic interplay regulating hematopoietic stem cell fate, and discuss the influence of metabolic stress stimuli, as well as alterations occurring during leukemic development.
