leukemogenesis

[lo̅o̅kē′mōjen′əsis]
the onset, development, or progression of leukemia.

leukemogenesis

A process in which successive transformational events enhance the ability of hematopoietic progenitor cells to proliferate, differentiate, and survive. See Autonomous proliferation.

leukemogenesis

the process of generation of myeloid cell lines in bone marrow and extramedullary sites; a critical feature in myeloproliferative disease; i.e. the induction or development of leukemia.

APTO-253 is a clinical-stage small molecule therapeutic that acts through induction of the innate tumor suppressor gene Kruppel-like factor 4 (KLF4), and suppression of KLF4 gene expression has been reported as a key driver in the leukemogenesis of AML and subsets of other hematologic diseases.
Another gene recently described, the HTLV-1 basic leucine zipper factor (HBZ), which is uniformly expressed in ATLL cells, seems to have a more important role in cellular transformation and leukemogenesis than does p40 tax.

Translocations, deletions, inversions, and other rearrangements are structural chromosomal abnormalities that comprise genes with oncogenic potential, which activate specific differentiation or proliferation pathways and cause the progression of leukemogenesis (1).
Furthermore, miR-150 may have an important impact on T-cell development and physiology by targeting NOTCH3, a member of the Notch receptor family that plays important roles in both T-cell differentiation and leukemogenesis (33).
In addition to structural changes involving CBFB, "second-hit" mutations, promoting cell division or cell survival, appear to be necessary for leukemogenesis.
The study was specifically designed to collect information on several environmental exposures potentially associated with leukemogenesis.
