26625814 BAALC and ERG genes are specific significant molecular markers in acute myeloid leukemia disease progression, response to treatment and survival.
26430723 combined determination of both miR-3151 and BAALC improved this prognostic stratification, with patients with low levels of both parameters showing a better outcome compared with those patients harboring increased levels of one or both markers
26050649 demonstrated that BAALC blocks ERK-mediated monocytic differentiation of acute myeloid leukemia cells by trapping Kruppel-like factor 4 (KLF4) in the cytoplasm and inhibiting its function in the nucleus
26012361 Evaluating WT1 and BAALC gene expression at diagnosis may improve standard risk stratification and possibly refine the therapeutic approach for Myelodysplastic Syndromes patients.
25428390 study indicates that overexpression of BAALC serves as an independent prognostic biomarker in acute myeloid leukemia
24855032 Thus low MDR1/low BAALC expression identifies a subgroup of intermediate cytogenetic risk AML patients with a remarkably good long-term outcome achieved by chemotherapy alone.
24736457 miR-3151 introns within BAALC have roles in driving leukemogenesis by deregulating the TP53 pathway
23865362 Investigated the prognostic impact of brain and acute leukemia, cytoplasmic (BAALC) expression in acute myeloid leukemia with normal karyotype.
23760853 BAALC overexpression retains its negative prognostic role across all cytogenetic risk groups in acute myeloid leukemia patients.
23672350 higher post-HSCT BAALC and WT1 expressions in patients with CBF-AML may be good markers of minimal residual disease for the prediction of survival and relapse after HSCT.
