or decades, the inefficiency of
natural thrombopoeitin (TPO)
on hematopoietic stem and
progenitor cells (HSPC) in severe
aplastic anema (SAA) has eluded
hematologists. This phenomenon
was made only more mysterious
by the apparent ability of eltrombopag, a c-MPL agonist, to resurrect
hematopoiesis despite binding to
the same receptor as TPO. In their
unprecedented Plenary Scientific
Session abstract "Heterodimerization of TPO and IFNγ Impairs Human Hematopoietic Stem/Progenitor Cell Signaling and Survival in
Chronic Inflammation," Dr. Luigi
J. Alvarado and colleagues at the
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
described the mechanism behind
this paradox, implicating a debili-

tating bond between IFNγ and TPO
that prevents dimerization of the
c-MPL receptor and paralyzes the
downstream signaling and survival
cascade.
In an elegant set of experiments,
the authors used various techniques

pigenetics, the regulation of
gene expression by endogenous chemical modification
of proteins and nucleic acids without altering the nucleotide identity

of underlying sequence, provides a
high degree of spatial and temporal
control over gene expression that is
critical to developmental differentiation and the maintenance of physiologic equilibrium.

including microscale thermophoresis (MST) and raster image correlation spectroscopy (RIC) to demonstrate this differential effect of IFNγ
on TPO versus eltrombopag. Their

Lymphoid Leukemia and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma."

posium (9:45 - 11:15 a.m., Hall C2C3), Dr. Richard Young will discuss
chromosome structure and function
in health and disease. Having first
described transcriptional superenhancers as large domains of concatenated enhancers that bind the
transcription factors Oct4, Sox2, and
Nanog in embryonic stem cells, the
Young lab characterized more differentiated cells, only to learn that
cell-type-specific transcription factors were found in high density in
super-enhancers. This established
that super-enhancers were critical
in the control of mammalian cell
identity. Most dramatically, reports
describe super-enhancers that have
been hijacked in cancer cells where
chromosomal rearrangements juxtapose super-enhancers with genes
critical to the neoplastic phenotype.
Dr. Young will elaborate on the role
enhancers and chromatin-associated
proteins play in the pathogenesis of
