Other works of interest include that of Ito and colleagues observed that in a mouse model of CML, disease progression is regulated by the Musashi–Numb signaling axis. They found that the chronic phase was marked by high levels of Numb expression, whereas mice in BC phase had low levels of Numb expression. Collectively their data showed that the Musashi–Numb pathway can control the differentiation of CML cells. Perrotti and colleagues have demonstrated that several targets shared by BCR–ABL1 and PP2A are either essential for BCR–ABL1 leukemogenesis or are altered in CML in BC.
