Differentation displacement in acute myeloid leukemia through enhancer activation

Blast cell differentation is inhibitited by pharmacological targeting of lysine specific demethylase 1 (LSD1). In this paper the researchers observed drug-induced changes in trascription without accumulating histone modifications caused by LSD1.

"I had a chance to test Lumascope in our cell culture lab. The device gives a great opportunity to observe live cells in a phase-contrast and fluorescence. We performed co-culture experiments where each cell type was labeled with different fluorochrome. Lumascope allowed for distinguishing cell type and observation of interaction between cells. The device was placed in a cell culture incubator with O2 control, therefore we could analyze those interactions in normoxic and hypoxic conditions. Additionally, the system can be useful for analysis of cells which express fluorochromes under control of certain promoters. It enables the evaluation of exact moment of certain genes activation and measurement of fluorescence intensity".
