Activation of Stat5 is frequently found in leukemias. To study the mechanism and role of Stat5 activation, we introduced a constitutively activated Stat5a mutant, cS5F, into murine bone marrow (BM) cells. BM transplantation with cS5F-transfected cells caused development of multilineage leukemias in lethally irradiated wild-type or nonirradiated Rag2(-/-)(More)
Mice carrying a hepatocyte-specific inactivation of the glucorticoid receptor (GR) gene show a dramatic reduction in body size. Growth hormone signaling mediated by the Stat5 transcription factors is impaired. We show that Stat5 proteins physically interact with GR and GR is present in vivo on Stat5-dependent IGF-I and ALS regulatory regions. Interestingly,(More)
BACKGROUND Erythropoietin (Epo) is required for correct execution of the erythroid differentiation program. Erythropoiesis requires Bcl-X(L), a major late target of Epo-receptor signaling. Mice lacking Bcl-X(L) die around embryonic age E12.5, forming normal erythroid progenitors but lacking functional red cells. Recently, serum-free culture conditions for(More)
BACKGROUND Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) regulates apoptotic balance and promotes cancer progression and invasion. Higher pretherapeutic GGT serum levels have been associated with worse outcomes in various malignancies, but there are no data for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). METHODS Pretherapeutic GGT serum levels and clinicopathological parameters were(More)
