Diminished proteasomal degradation results in accumulation of Gfi1 protein in monocytes.


Gfi1 is a transcriptional repressor essential during myeloid differentiation. Gfi1-/- mice exhibit a block in myeloid differentiation resulting in the accumulation of an immature myelo-monocytic cell population and the complete absence of mature neutrophils. Even though mRNA levels of Gfi1 appear to be very low in monocytes, Gfi1 might play a role in the… (More)
