Autophagy in hematopoiesis and acute myeloid leukemia

Abstract:

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) develops following oncogenic alterations to hematopoietic stem (HSC) and progenitor cells (HSPCs) in the bone marrow, resulting in dysregulated proliferation of immature myeloid progenitors that interferes with normal hematopoiesis. Understanding the mechanisms of HSPC protection against damage and excessive division, and how these pathways are altered during leukemic progression, is vital for establishing effective therapies. Here, we show that autophagy, a ly...
