Periostin (POSTN) is a multifunctional extracellular component that regulates cell-matrix interactions and cell-cell crosstalk. POSTN deletion significantly decreases leukemia burden in mice; however, the underlying mechanisms by which POSTN promotes B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) progression remain largely unknown. Here, we demonstrate that bone marrow (BM)-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (BM-MSCs) express higher levels of POSTN when co-cultured with B-ALL cells in vitro and in vivo. POSTN deficiency in BM-MSCs significantly decreases CCL2 expression in co-cultured B-ALL cells in vitro and in vivo. Moreover, POSTN treatment increases expression of CCL2 in B-ALL cells by activating the integrin-ILK-NF-κB pathway. Conversely, CCL2 treatment upregulates expression of POSTN in BM-MSCs via STAT3 activation. Furthermore, there is a positive correlation between POSTN expression and CCL2 level in the BM of mice and patients with B-ALL. These findings suggest that B-ALL cell-derived CCL2 contributes to the increased leukemia burden promoted by BM-MSC-derived POSTN.

Bone-marrow-derived, non-hematopoietic cells that support HEMATOPOETIC STEM CELLS. They have also been isolated from other organs and tissues such as UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD, umbilical vein subendothelium, and WHARTON JELLY. These cells are considered to be a source of multipotent stem cells because they include subpopulations of mesenchymal stem cells.

A cytokine produced by bone marrow stromal cells that promotes the growth of B-LYMPHOCYTE precursors and is co-mitogenic with INTERLEUKIN-2 for mature T-LYMPHOCYTE activation.
Cells contained in the bone marrow including fat cells (see ADIPOCYTES); STROMAL CELLS; MEGAKARYOCYTES; and the immediate precursors of most blood cells.
Neoplasms located in the bone marrow. They are differentiated from neoplasms composed of bone marrow cells, such as MULTIPLE MYELOMA. Most bone marrow neoplasms are metastatic.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
