Gene expression of novel retro virus associated with human acute muloid leukemia
Objective: To explore the potentiality of retroviral etiology in human acute myeloid leukemia(AML). Methods: The expression of clone 6#11 in leukemic cell samples from 19 AML cases and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMNCs) from 20 controls was studied by means of Northern blot and reversal transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Results: Northern blot and RT-PCR analyses showed that the expression level of clone 6#11 was significantly higher in AML patients than that in control. Conclusion: Northern blot and RT-PCR analyses revealed that the expression of novel retrovirus were associated with acute myeloid leukemia.
