Expression and function of adhesion receptors in acute myelogenous leukemia: parallels with normal erythroid and myeloid progenitors.


A variety of adhesion receptors are expressed on the blast cells in patients with acute myelogenous leukemia. The panel of receptors expressed demonstrates heterogeneity just as there is morphologic, histochemical, cytogenetic, and molecular genetic variation between various cases of acute myelogenous leukemia. The adhesion receptors expressed contain… (More)
