Abstract We investigated the role of ETV6/ARG fusion genes by exposing the HT93A cell line to nilotinib. HT93A cells were cultured with or without nilotinib ± 50 ng/ml of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). Nilotinib treatment inhibited cell growth by increasing the percentage of cells in the G0/G1 phase through the decrease of phosphorylated STAT3 (Y705), STAT5 (Y694), and c-Myc expression. After stimulation with G-CSF, STAT5 but not STAT3 was significantly phosphorylated in both nilotinib-treated and untreated cells. Moreover, combination therapy with nilotinib and G-CSF returned the expression level of c-Myc, cell growth, and cell cycle distribution to the control level. These findings suggest that the ETV6/ARG oncoprotein contributes to autonomous cell growth by compensating for the requirement of growth factor through activating STAT5 signaling, which leads to the upregulation of c-Myc. Our data suggest that ETV6/ARG oncoprotein is a potential target in the treatment of leukemia.
