Division of Hematology Oncology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Center for Life Science, Boston, MA, USA
EMBO J 30:4059-70. 2011..Overall, our in vivo data provide novel evidence about the role of RUNX1 in mediating interactions between distal and proximal elements of the HSC gene CD34...
- Sox4 is a key oncogenic target in C/EBPα mutant acute myeloid leukemiaHong Zhang
Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02215, USA Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, MA 02215, USA
Cancer Cell 24:575-88. 2013..Our data demonstrate that Sox4 overexpression resulting from C/EBPα inactivation contributes to the development of leukemia with a distinct LIC phenotype. ..
- C/EBPa controls acquisition and maintenance of adult haematopoietic stem cell quiescenceMin Ye
Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Harvard Medical School, and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
Nat Cell Biol 15:385-94. 2013..Mechanistically we identified N-Myc as a downstream target of C/EBPa, and loss of C/EBPa resulted in de-repression of N-Myc. Our data establish C/EBPa as a central determinant in the switch from fetal to adult HSCs...
