Abstract

The bone marrow stroma maintains hematopoiesis and coordinately regulates regenerative responses through dynamic interactions with hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. Recent studies indicate that stromal components in the bone marrow of leukemia patients undergo a process of successive adaptation that in turn exerts dramatic effects on the hematopoietic stem cell compartment and promotes leukemic drug resistance. Therefore, functional changes in discrete marrow stromal populations can be considered an aspect of leukemia biogenesis in that they create an aberrant, self-reinforcing microenvironment. In this review, we will describe the current understanding of the remodeling of the hematopoietic stem cell niche following invasion by leukemia cells. We place emphasis on existing evidence of how mesenchymal stem cells and their progeny facilitate neoplastic growth and describe available models and analytical techniques to understand the conversion of the niche toward disease persistence.
