Resumen:
Mutations of CSNK1A1, a gene mapping to the commonly deleted region of the 5q-syndrome, have been recently described in patients with del(5q) myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Haploinsufficiency of Csnk1a1 in mice has been shown to result in beta-catenin activation and expansion of haematopoietic stem cells (HSC). We have screened a large cohort of 104 del(5q) MDS patients and have identified mutations of CSNK1A1 in five cases (approximately 5%). We have shown up-regulation of beta-catenin target genes in the HSC of patients with del(5q) MDS. Our data further support a central role of CSNK1A1 in the pathogenesis of MDS with del(5q).
