HTLV-I transformed T cells not only express a large number of interleukin-2 receptors [IL-2R/p55(Tac)], but also produce a factor named ATL-derived factor (ADF) that augments the expression of IL-2R/p55(Tac). Based on a partial N-terminal amino acid sequence, complementary DNA (cDNA) clones for human and mouse ADF were isolated and sequenced. Recombinant(More)
Because there is controversy regarding whether subsets of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) are part of the malignant clone in patients with multiple myeloma, we studied this question by immunoglobulin and T cell receptor gene analysis. Southern blot analysis with antibody probes demonstrated clonal immunoglobulin gene rearrangements in PBLs of seven of(More)
The CBA/H mouse model of radiation-induced acute myeloid leukaemia (rAML) has been studied for decades to bring to light the molecular mechanisms associated with multistage carcinogenesis. A specific interstitial deletion of chromosome 2 found in a high proportion of rAML is recognised as the initiating event. The deletion leads to the loss of Sfpi, a gene(More)
Exposure to ionising radiation can lead to an increased risk of cancer, particularly leukaemia. In radiation-induced acute myeloid leukaemia (rAML), a partial hemizygous deletion of mouse chromosome 2 is a common feature in several susceptible strains. The deletion is an early event detectable 24h after exposure in bone marrow cells using cytogenetic(More)

T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) is a high-risk subset of acute leukemia, characterized by frequent activation of Notch1 or AKT signaling, where new therapeutic approaches are needed. We showed previously that cyclin-dependent kinase 6 (CDK6) is required for thymic lymphoblastic lymphoma induced by activated AKT. Here, we show CDK6 is required(More)
