Core-binding factor runt domain a-subunit 2 translocated to 3 (CBFA2T3)-GLIS
family zinc finger 2 (GLIS2)
fusion protein as a biomarker for non-Down syndrome acute megakaryoblastic
Genetic and in vitro
studies suggest the CBFA2T3-GLIS2 fusion protein could be useful as a
biomarker in pediatric non-DS-AMKL. In patients with pediatric non-DS-AMKL, 7
of 14 patients showed an inversion in chromosome 16 that led to expression of
a CBFA2T3-GLIS2 fusion protein. In 12 pediatric patients carrying the
mutations, 5-year survival was lower than that for 28 pediatric patients
without the mutation. In murine hematopoietic progenitor cells, expression of
the fusion protein increased self-renewal capacity compared with expression
of GLIS2 alone, suggesting the fusion protein contributes to leukemogenesis.
Next steps could include additional validation studies.
