Differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells into B-lymphocytes requires the concerted action of specific transcription factors, such as RUNX1, IKZF1, E2A, EBF1 and PAX5. As key determinants of normal B-cell development, B-lineage transcription factors are frequently deregulated in hematological malignancies, such as B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL), and affected by either chromosomal translocations, gene deletions or point mutations. However, genetic aberrations in this developmental pathway are generally insufficient to induce BCP-ALL, and often complemented by genetic defects in cytokine receptors and tyrosine kinases (IL-7Rα, CRLF2, JAK2, c-ABL1), transcriptional co-factors (TBL1XR1, CBP, BTG1), as well as regulatory pathways that mediate cell cycle control (pRB, INK4A/B). Here, we provide a detailed overview of the genetic pathways that interact with these B-lineage specification factors, and describe how mutations affecting these master regulators together with cooperating lesions drive leukemia development.Leukemia accepted article preview online, 10 October 2012; doi:10.1038/leu.2012.293.
