Acute myeloid leukemia originates from a hierarchy of leukemic stem cell classes that differ in self-renewal capacity

Abstract

Emerging evidence suggests cancer stem cells sustain neoplasms; however, little is understood of the normal cell initially targeted and the resultant cancer stem cells. We show here, by tracking individual human leukemia stem cells (LSCs) in nonobese diabetic–severe combined immunodeficiency mice serially transplanted with acute myeloid leukemia cells, that… (More)
