To study the mechanism of acquired resistance to bortezomib, a new antitumor drug that is the first therapeutic proteasome inhibitor, we established a series of bortezomib-resistant T lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia cell lines, designated the JurkatBs, from the parental Jurkat line via repeated drug selection. There were no significant differences in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between bortezomib resistance and mutations in the proteasome beta5 subunit (PSMB5) gene. MATERIALS AND METHODS Various bortezomib-resistant lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia lines were established by repeated cycles of bortezomib selection. Mutations were detected by sequencing the complementary DNA of the PSMB5(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the mechanism of bortezomib resistance in JurkatB lines derived from T-lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia Jurkat line. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cytotoxicities of popular chemotherapeutic drugs to JurkatB cells were analyzed by trypan blue assay. Functional drug efflux in JurkatB cells was determined by flow cytometry utilizing daunorubicin(More)
BACKGROUND In acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the leukemia initiating cells (LICs) or leukemia stem cells (LSCs) is found within the CD34+CD38- cell compartment. The LICs subpopulation survives chemotherapy and is most probable the cause of minimal residual disease (MRD), which in turn is thought to cause relapse. The aim of this study was to determine the(More)
Previous studies have revealed that uncontrollable stress can impair the synaptic plasticity and firing property of hippocampal neurons, which influenced various hippocampal-dependent tasks including memory, cognition, behavior, and mood. In this work, we had investigated the effects and mechanisms of the Chinese herbal medicine Xiao Yao San (XYS) against(More)
Dicentric (9;20) [dic(9;20)] is a rare recurring chromosome abnormality in leukemia patients. In this study, we report three adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) with dic(9;20) anomaly. All three patients were diagnosed as cluster of differentiation 10 (CD10) positive B cell ALL, achieved complete remission after induction chemotherapy,(More)
OBJECTIVE To report an acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL) case with translocation of rob (13;21) t(15;17) (q22;q21) and review its clinical and laboratory characteristics. METHODS Based on routine karyotype analysis and bone marrow morphology, we further used double color double fluorescent in situ hybridization (DCDF-FISH) and reverse transcriptase PCR(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the patients' characteristics and efficacy of prognosis evaluation by International Prognosis Scoring System (IPSS) and Revised International Prognosis Scoring System (IPSS-R) in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). METHODS Prognostic value of IPSS and IPSS-R was evaluated on clinical data from 159 MDS patients, according(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is generally regarded as a disorder of stem cells, known as leukemic initiating cells (LICs), which initiate the disease and contribute to relapses. Although the phenotype of these cells remains unclear in most patients, they are enriched within the CD34(+)CD38(-) population. In core-binding factor (CBF) AML, the cytogenetic(More)
