Calcium ionophore activation of chronic myelogenous leukemia progenitor cells into dendritic cells is mediated by calcineurin phosphatase.


We have previously demonstrated that Ph+ myeloid progenitor cells of patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) can acquire characteristics of mature dendritic cells (DC) following calcium mobilization with calcium ionophore (A23187, CI). In this study we characterize the intracellular signaling pathway by which CI induces the acquisition of DC features… (More)
