Perturbation of fetal liver hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell development by trisomy 21.

Abstract:

The 40-fold increase in childhood megakaryocyte-erythroid and B-cell leukemia in Down syndrome implicates trisomy 21 (T21) in perturbing fetal hematopoiesis. Here, we show that compared with primary disomic controls, primary T21 fetal liver (FL) hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and megakaryocyte-erythroid progenitors are markedly increased, whereas granulocyte-macrophage progenitors are reduced. Commensurately, HSC and megakaryocyte-erythroid progenitors show higher clonogenicity, with increase...
