RNA Splicing Modulation Selectively Impairs Leukemia Stem Cell Maintenance in Secondary Human AML

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Crews et al. show that unique splice isoform signatures distinguish normal human HSC and progenitor cell aging from AML and MDS progenitors. Widespread deregulation of splicing factor gene expression typified AML progenitors and sensitized them to small-molecule splicing-targeted agents, supporting the utility of spliceosome modulation in leukemia stem cell eradication and anti-aging strategies.
