Actuation of Single Downstream Nodes in Growth Factor Network Steers Immune Cell Migration
By optogenetically targeting different nodes in the Ras/PI3K/Akt network in differentiated human HL-60 neutrophils, scientists abruptly altered protrusive activity, bypassing the chemoattractant receptor/G-protein network.
[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.
