Mutations in BCR-ABL kinase domain are associated with resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors in some patients with chronic myeloid leukemia. Therefore, mutation detection becomes essential in such patients. We aimed to apply high-resolution melt curve analysis (HRM) for a rapid screening prior to sequencing to select only mutation positive samples. One(More)
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is caused by constituve activity of BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase. Despite of high efficiency of imatinib, selective BCR-ABL inhibitor, about 30% of patients develop resistance. Novel markers and targets for therapy are thus necessary. MicroRNAs are small intereference RNAs whose role in physiological and malignant hematopoiesis has(More)
Heat shock proteins (Hsp) are important for the stability and function of cell proteins and thus for cell survival under physiological as well as stress conditions. Hsps were also reported to play an important role in tumorogenesis including leukemias. In this study we followed up Hsp70 and 90 protein levels in samples from patients with chronic myeloid(More)
Although the mechanism of action of leukemic oncogene Wilms' tumor gene 1 (WT1) remains unclear, WT1 has already been used in monitoring of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and it is being tested for immunotherapy. More detailed understanding of the role of WT1 in leukemia may improve its utilization. At least 36 isoforms may be produced. Four(More)
MicroRNAs are important regulators of transcription in hematopoiesis. Their expression deregulations were described in association with pathogenesis of some hematological malignancies. This study provides integrated microRNA expression profiling at different phases of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) with the aim to identify microRNAs associated with CML(More)
