The effects of Adox to induce fetal globin gene expression in human bone marrow erythroid progenitor cells. (A) Q-RT-PCR quantification of γ-globin from human BM treated with indicated concentrations of Adox or decitabine (Deci, 4 μM) with refreshment twice a week compared to PBS control (Ctrl) after 21 days of culture. Graphs show mean ± SD, n = 3. (B) Wright-Giemsa-stained adult bone marrow erythroid progenitor cells at day 21 of differentiation. (C) HPLC analysis of globin in human BM cells treated with Adox (20 μM) or decitabine (4 μM). Peaks for HbF are indicated. Data are representative of three independent experiments. (D) Q-RT-PCR quantification of mRNA levels of β-globin as percentage of (β-globin + γ-globin) from human BM treated with Adox (20 μM) or decitabine (Deci, 4 μM) with refreshment twice a week compared to PBS control (Ctrl) after 21 days of culture. Graphs show mean ± SD, n = 3. (E) Q-RT-PCR quantification of mRNA levels of β-globin as percentage of (β-globin + γ-globin) from human BM treated with Adox (20 μM) or decitabine (Deci, 4 μM) with refreshment twice a week compared to PBS control (Ctrl) after 21 days of culture. Graphs show mean ± SD, n = 3. (F) Q-RT-PCR quantification of α-globin and β-globin from BM treated with Adox (20 μM) with refreshment twice a week compared to PBS control (Ctrl) after 21 days of culture. Graphs show mean ± SD, n = 3.
