Oncogenesis and ontogeny of blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) remain uncertain, between canonical plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) and AXL+ SIGLEC6+ DCs (AS-DCs). We compared 12 BPDCN to 164 acute leukemia by Affymetrix HG-U133 Plus 2.0 arrays: BPDCN were closer to B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), with enrichment in pDC, B-cell signatures, vesicular transport, deubiquitination pathways, and AS-DC signatures, but only in some cases. Importantly, 1 T-cell A… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
