Interaction of tumour cells with their microenvironment impacts on all aspects of cancer, ranging from development through to treatment response. In this issue, Dvorak and colleagues(1) reveal a novel tumour/microevironment relationship that may drive leukemia pathogenesis. Specifically, they find that leukemic cells secrete chromatin-complexed DNA that, in turn, triggers a variety of harmful effects, including cell death, in neighbouring stromal cells. Through this toxicity, DNA-mediated bone marrow destruction could promote disease progression by allowing leukemic cells to exit the bone marrow into the circulation.Oncogene advance online publication, 28 January 2013; doi:10.1038/onc.2012.639.
