Abstract

The hierarchical gene regulatory network in hematopoiesis is highly complex, making elucidation of the processes of specification and differentiation of hematopoietic cells a challenging task. Recent discoveries have divulged the GATA factors as central to the genetic control of hematopoiesis. In particular, hematopoietic development is subject to extensive and precise regulation of GATA-1 and GATA-2 at the molecular level. We wish to emphasize the regulatory relationships between GATA-1 and GATA-2 implicated in cell development. An advanced experimental genetic approach has provided evidence that abnormalities in this network may result in a variety of blood disorders. The most striking new finding is the novel pathogenesis arising from GATA-1 dysfunction that leads to leukemia.
