Standard name WANG_RESPONSE_TO_GSK3_INHIBITOR_SB216763_DN
Systematic name M2132
Brief description Genes down-regulated in RS4;11 cells (MLL, mixed lineage leukemia) in response to SB216763 [PubChem=176158], an inhibitor of GSK3B [GeneID=2932].
Full description or abstract Acute leukemias induced by MLL chimeric oncoproteins are among the subset of cancers distinguished by a paradoxical dependence on GSK-3 kinase activity for sustained proliferation. We demonstrate here that GSK-3 maintains the MLL leukemia stem cell transcriptional program by promoting the conditional association of CREB and its coactivators TORC and CBP with homedomain protein MEIS1, a critical component of the MLL-subordinate program, which in turn facilitates HOX-mediated transcription and transformation. This mechanism also applies to hematopoietic cells transformed by other HOX genes, including CDX2, which is highly expressed in a majority of acute myeloid leukemias, thus providing a molecular approach based on GSK-3 inhibitory strategies to target HOX-associated transcription in a broad spectrum of leukemias.
