Multiple myeloma is a deadly hematopoietic malignancy characterized by proliferation of malignant plasma cells in the bone marrow and bone disease. Interactions between myeloma and bone marrow cells facilitate tumor progression and resistance to therapies. CXCR4 and its ligand SDF-1 play a primary role in this process and are associated with poor prognosis. The Notch pathway is active in myeloma cells, resulting in increased proliferation, resistance to apoptosis and osteolytic activity. We hypothesized that the CXCR4/SDF-1 axis mediates the effects of Notch signals in myeloma cells. Here we show that Notch positively controls CXCR4/SDF-1 expression and functions in myeloma cell lines, and that forced CXCR4 activation partially rescues tumor cells from the outcomes of Notch inhibition. Additionally, we provide evidences that Notch blocking in vivo significantly reduces bone marrow infiltration by human myeloma cells in mouse xenografts. This is the first evidence that a Notch-targeted approach effectively prevents multiple myeloma cell migration, proliferation and resistance to apoptosis by reducing CXCR4 and SDF-1 levels.Leukemia accepted article preview online, 28 January 2013;. doi:10.1038/leu.2013.27.
