N2 - Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) develops via a multistep process involving several genetic and epigenetic events, which ultimately leads to the formation of a heterogeneous population of malignant cells, of which only a small subpopulation termed the leukemia initiating cell (LIC) is able to sustain the leukemia. The identity of the LIC is highly diverse and ranges from populations resembling hematopoietic stem cells or multipotent progenitors (MPPs) to more committed myeloid progenitors, and the question still remains whether this is a direct consequence of which cells are targets of the final transforming events. In this study, we use premalignant cells from a Cebpa mutant AML model, in which the LIC population resembles granulocyte-macrophage progenitors (GMPs), to show that premalignant GMPs undergo spontaneous immortalization with a high clonal frequency when cultured in vitro, suggesting that these cells constitute the target of the final transforming events.
