Oncogenic cooperation in a human de novo T-ALL model
We previously modelled T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) by over-expressing four oncogenes (activated NOTCH1, LMO2, TAL1, and BMI1) in healthy human umbilical cord blood cells through lentiviral transduction (Kusakabe et al, Nat Commun 10, 2913 (2019). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-019-10510-8). We have now tested individual effects of the four oncogenes by transducing human cells with all possible combinations of one, two, three, and four oncogenes. We also tested the effects of additional known T-ALL oncogenes including HOXA9, LYL1, MEF2C, NXK2.1, TLX1, and TLX3. In addition to culture in vitro on OP9-DL1 feeders, we also injected transduced cells into immunodeficient NSG mice. We observed differing abilities of the various oncogene combinations to support growth in vitro and frank leukemia in vivo. This study includes RNA-seq data from samples of transduced cells cultured in vitro as well as cells harvested from clinically moribund mice after development of leukemia in vivo.
