5’UTR point substitutions and N-terminal truncating mutations of ANKRD26 in acute myeloid leukemia

Thrombocytopenia 2 (THC2) is an inherited disorder caused by monoallelic single nucleotide substitutions in the 5’UTR of the ANKRD26 gene. Patients have thrombocytopenia and increased risk of myeloid malignancies, in particular, acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Given the association of variants in the ANKRD26 5’UTR with myeloid neoplasms, we investigated whether, and to what extent...

Pathogenetic mechanisms of hematological abnormalities of patients with MYH9 mutations

Mutations of MYH9, the gene for non-muscle myosin heavy chain IIA (NMMHC-IIA), cause a complex clinical phenotype characterized by macrothrombocytopenia and granulocyte inclusion bodies, often associated with deafness, cataracts and/or glomerulonephritis. The pathogenetic mechanisms of these defects are either completely unknown or controversial. In particular, it is a matter of...
