Mesenchymal Inflammation Drives Genotoxic Stress in Hematopoietic Stem Cells and Predicts Disease Evolution in Human Pre-leukemia

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Cell-extrinsic factors driving malignant transformation remain understudied. In a mouse model of pre-leukemia, Zambetti and colleagues establish a concept of mesenchymal niche-induced genotoxic stress in hematopoietic stem cells through p53-S100A8/9-TLR4 signaling, with relevance to human leukemia. The findings provide conceptual and mechanistic insights into the link between inflammation and cancer.
