There is a new breakthrough in the survival and self-renewal capacity of hematopoietic stem / progenitor cells

The Development and Disease Research Group of the Key Laboratory of Stem Cell Biology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences recently published the latest research results Dominant-Negative C / ebpα and Polycomb Group Protein Bmi1 Extends Short-Lived Hematopoietic Stem / Progenitor Cells Lifespan and Induces Lethal Dyserythropoiesis.

This study used zebrafish as a model organism to study the role of key regulatory factors C / ebpα and Bmi1 in the development of hematopoietic development and leukemia in early hematopoietic stem / progenitor cell survival and maintenance of self-renewal capacity, and established hematopoietic An abnormally developed zebrafish disease model. This achievement provides a new basis for understanding the molecular regulation pathway of hematopoietic stem cell self-renewal and further exploring the mechanism of hematopoietic system development and disease occurrence.

Under the guidance of researchers, Zhou Ting, a PhD student in the research group, used the lmo2 promoter specific to early hematopoietic tissue and the Cre-loxP system to specifically express the leukemia key factor C / ebpα in zebrafish early hematopoietic stem / progenitor cells Dominant negative protein and Bmi1 protein. It was found that the dominant negative C / ebpα protein (Dominant-Negative C / ebpα) can extend the cell life span of this group of short-lived stem cells with limited self-renewal capacity to the stage of embryonic hematopoiesis, and In turn, it induces erythropoietic dysplasia.

Further studies have confirmed that the C / ebpα protein can specifically bind the C / EBP binding sequence of the Bmi1 gene promoter region to increase the specificity of Bmi1 expression in the C / ebpα dominant negative transgenic fish line; Sexual overexpression of Bmi1 can obtain a phenotype that is very similar to the C / ebpα dominant negative transgenic fish line, otherwise the abnormal phenotype can basically disappear. These results suggest that the epigenetic regulatory factor Bmi1 may be directly downstream of the C / ebpα protein. The dominant negative C / ebpα protein affects the survival and self-renewal ability of early hematopoietic stem / progenitor cells by upregulating Bmi1.

Olive wood is naturally very highly durable, non - porous, dense and strong, making it an ideal material for kitchen use. Olive wood is a healthy, eco - friendly alternative to sillicon or plastic, is more enduring than bamboo or other woods, and is both functional and beautiful to behold.
