Abstract

The expression of the myeloperoxidase (MPO) gene was studied, by means of Northern blot analysis in 14 cases of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), 11 cases of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), and 6 cases of CML blast crisis, and in HL60 cells before and after induction of terminal differentiation with retinoic acid (RA), phorbol esters (TPA), or vitamin D. The expression of a panel of cell cycle-related genes, namely C-MYC, histone H3, ornithine decarboxylase, P53, vimentin, and calcyclin, was also studied in the same cell populations. Our results indicate that: (a) MPO gene expression (steady state mRNA levels) is strictly confined to the first stages of myeloid differentiation, reaching its peak at the promyelocyte stage and becoming undetectable in mature granulocytes and monocytes; (b) cells devoid of any detectable MPO enzymatic activity such as leukemic basophils have a high content of MPO mRNA; and (c) MPO gene expression is not related to the growth activity of the cell population. Finally, our results show that the pattern of expression of growth-regulated genes in the neoplastic myeloid disorders AML, CML, and CML blast crisis is remarkably different.
