Protein that can help in the treatment of leukemia

Scientists at UCLA have discovered a protein produced by a gene known as MLLT3 and its connection to the self-renewal of human blood stem cells. The scientists observed that activating the protein causes blood cells to self-renew at least twelvefold in laboratory conditions. The finding which was published in the journal Nature is very much significant as cancers such as leukemia can be effectively treated using blood stem cells, also known as Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), produced outside the human body. Moreover, it could serve as an alternative to existing treatment options for many inherited blood diseases as well as bone marrow transplants.
