A faithful in vivo model of human MLL-AF4 proB acute lymphoblastic leukemia

ABSTRACT: Transcriptome analysis by RNAseq of leukemia model promoted by MLL-Af4 or MLL-AF9 fusion proteins. We find each fusion protein promotes a specific gene signature correlating to those identified in patients Overall design: Human CD34+ hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells were transduced with retrovirus expressing MLL-Af4 or MLL-AF9. Transduced cells were transplanted into immunodeficient mice to induce lymphoid leukemia or placed in myeloid in vitro culture. CD19+ lymphoid leukemia cells (3 AF9, 6 Af4), control health CD19+CD34+ proB cells (n=3) and 4 pairs of Af4 and AF9 CD33+CD19- myeloid culture cells were collected for RNA-seq

INSTRUMENT(S): Illumina HiSeq 1000 (Homo sapiens)

The t(4;11)(q21;q23) fuses mixed-lineage leukemia (MLL) to AF4, the most common MLL-fusion partner. Here we show that MLL fused to murine Af4, highly conserved with human AF4, produces high-titer retrovirus permitting efficient transduction of human CD34<sup>+</sup> cells, thereby generating a model of t(4;11) pro-B acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) that fully recapitulates the immunophenotypic and molecular aspects of the disease. MLL-Af4 induces a B ALL distinct from MLL-AF9 through different  ...[more]
