Data_Sheet_1_THBS1 Is a Novel Serum Prognostic Factors of Acute Myeloid Leukemia.pdf
Dysregulation of cytokines and growth factors is a general feature of tumor microenvironment, and unraveling the expression spectrum of cytokine and growth factor in niche is of utmost importance. Here, we evaluated cytokine profiling of bone marrow serum samples in AML patients and healthy controls. Protein expression profiling of serum from nine AML patients and five healthy controls was obtained using a biotinylated antibody chip. A total of 507 cytokines and growth factors were analyzed. Compared with healthy people, AML patients expressed 31 signature proteins, among which, 27 were significantly higher expressed and 4 proteins were lower. When patients were divided into favorable and poor prognosis, 12 signature proteins were significantly differentially expressed between these two groups. Furthermore, in order to identify the accuracy of cytokine expression profiles, we verified and analyzed the expression of THBS1 (Thrombospondin 1) in 116 patients and 9 healthy people. We found that THBS1 was lowly expressed in AML patients, which might be induced by promoter methylation, and patients with low THBS1 possessed shorter survivor time. Our data indicated that we successfully unveil differentially expressed proteins in AML patients using a biotinylated antibody chip; among them, THBS1 may be a potential therapeutic target for AML patients' treatment.
