MLL translocations specify a distinct gene expression profile that distinguishes a unique leukemia
Acute lymphoblastic leukemias carrying a chromosomal translocation involving the mixed-lineage leukemia gene (MLL, ALL1, HRX) have a particularly poor prognosis. Here we show that they have aExpand

Biological and therapeutic aspects of infant leukemia.
Leukemias diagnosed in the first 12 months of life are characterized by an equal distribution of lymphoid and myeloid subtypes and account for 2.5% to 5% of acute lymphoblastic leukemias (ALLs) andExpand

Duplication of the MYB oncogene in T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia
We identified a duplication of the MYB oncogene in 8.4% of individuals with T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and in five T-ALL cell lines. The duplication is associated with a threefoldExpand

Identification of new microRNA genes and aberrant microRNA profiles in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) control the expression of protein-coding genes in normal hematopoietic cells and, consequently, aberrant expression may contribute to leukemogenesis. To identify miRNAs relevant toExpand

In vitro cellular drug resistance in children with relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Cellular drug resistance is thought to be an important cause of the poor prognosis for children with relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), but it is unknown when, to which drugs,Expand

Molecular determinants of glucocorticoid sensitivity and resistance in acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Glucocorticoids (GC) are probably the most important drugs in the treatment of ALL. Despite the extensive use of GC for many years, little is known about the molecular mechanisms of sensitivity andExpand

Prognostic significance of molecular-cytogenetic abnormalities in pediatric T-ALL is not explained by immunophenotypic differences
Pediatric T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) is characterized by chromosomal rearrangements possibly enforcing arrest at specific development stages. We studied the relationship betweenExpand

NOTCH1 and/or FBXW7 mutations predict for initial good prednisone response but not for improved outcome in pediatric T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients treated on DCOG or COALL protocols
Aberrant activation of the NOTCH1 pathway by inactivating and activating mutations in NOTCH1 or FBXW7 is a frequent phenomenon in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). We retrospectivelyExpand

The heterogeneity of pediatric MLL-rearranged acute myeloid leukemia
Translocations involving the mixed-lineage leukemia (MLL) gene, localized at 11q23, comprise 15 to 20% of all pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cases. This review summarizes current knowledgeExpand

Glucocorticoid receptor alpha, beta and gamma expression vs in vitro glucocorticod resistance in childhood leukemia
Alternative splicing of the primary glucocorticoid receptor (GR) transcript, resulting in glucocorticoid receptor alpha GRα, glucocorticoid receptor beta GRβ and glucocorticoid receptor gamma GRγ,Expand
