Notch pathway is a well-known factor in the development of lymphoid lineage. However, its role in the myeloid lineage has remained ambiguous. We looked into the effect of Notch1 on the megakaryocytic lineage commitment and found an increase in megakaryocyte-specific lineage markers upon transfection with Notch1 intracellular domain (NICD). This effect was(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clonal hematopoietic malignant disorder which arises due to dysregulated differentiation, uncontrolled growth and inhibition of apoptosis leading to the accumulation of immature myeloid progenitor in the bone marrow. The heterogeneity of the disease at the molecular and cytogenetic level has led to the identification of(More)
Erythropoiesis is a tightly regulated process dependent on extrinsic signals conveyed by the bone marrow niche. The signalling pathways thus activated or repressed do not act in isolation; rather an intricate cross talk among these pathways ensues homoeostasis within the erythroid compartment. In this study, we describe the effects of two such signalling(More)
The Notch signaling pathway, a known regulator of cell fate decisions, proliferation, and apoptosis, has recently been implicated in the regulation of glycolysis, which affects tumor progression. However, the impact of Notch on other metabolic pathways remains to be elucidated. To gain more insights into the Notch signaling and its role in regulation of(More)
Recently, migration and invasion of breast cancer cells have been linked with dysregulated mitochondrial dynamics. Mitochondria are essential cellular organelles that undergo continuous dynamic cycles of fission and fusion. It has been proposed that a delicate balance between these two processes is important for many pathophysiological outcomes including(More)
