To understand the interactions between Notch1 and Ikaros in the evolution of T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL), we traced the evolution of T-ALL in mice with an inherited Ikaros mutation, Ikzf1 Plstc which inactivates DNA binding. DNA-binding Ikaros repressed Notch1 response in transfected cell lines and in CD4 +8 + (DP) thymocytes from young pre-leukemic Ikzf1 Plstc heterozygous mice. In DP thymocytes, a 50-1000 fold escalation in mRNA for Notch1 target genes Hes1 and Dtx1 preceded...[Show more]
