La survie et la prolifération des progéniteurs et précurseurs érythroïdes se trouvent sous le contrôle de l’érythropoïétine (Epo), qui est le principal régulateur de l’érythropoïèse. La différenciation érythroïde s’effectue sous la dépendance du facteur de transcription GATA-1 qui active l’expression des gènes de différenciation et de survie. La production des globules rouges est finement régulée par l’inhibition ou au contraire par l’induction de l’apoptose des progéniteurs et des précurseurs érythroïdes. La baisse du taux d’Epo circulante ou l’induction de la voie Fas aboutissent à l’activation de la caspase-3 qui entraîne la protéolyse de GATA-1, l’arrêt de maturation et l’apoptose des érythroblastes immatures. Nous avons montré qu’une activation transitoire de la caspase-3 par la voie mitochondriale est indispensable à la maturation érythroïde. Dans ce contexte, la protéine chaperonne hsp70 joue un rôle majeur en protégeant GATA-1 du clivage par la caspase-3. La différenciation terminale est caractérisée par une réduction progressive du volume cellulaire et du noyau associée à une condensation de la chromatine. Ces changements morphologiques présentent certaines similitudes avec ceux observés dans les cellules en cours d’apoptose. L’énucléation s’effectue ensuite au sein d’îlots érythroblastiques constitués d’un macrophage central étroitement associé par des molécules d’adhérence à des érythroblastes en cours de maturation. La membrane de l’érythroblaste perd progressivement son affinité pour le macrophage alors que le noyau reste fixé, ce qui permet l’énucléation et la phagocytose du noyau par le macrophage. Les réticulocytes ainsi formés vont compléter leur maturation en perdant leurs organelles et en remodelant leur membrane. Nos études suggèrent que le devenir des précurseurs érythroïdes (apoptose versus différenciation) est déterminé par le choix des cibles clivées par les caspases. Si la fonction du clivage de certaines protéines telles que la lamine B ou acinus est bien connue, l’identité et la fonction des autres cibles clivées par les caspases au cours de la maturation terminale restent à déterminer.

The study of the human hematopoietic system would be facilitated by availability of a relevant animal model. Because the medullar microenvironment is made of different types of cells, interactions between hematopoietic cells and stromal cells are difficult to analyze in detail. As an approach for establishing an in vivo model to dissect these interactions, we grafted murine bone marrow fibroblastic cells (MS-5 cell line) with hematopoietic cells into the kidney capsule of syngenic mice. To identify the origin of cells present in the graft, we used green fluorescent protein-stable transfected MS-5 cells for the transplantation. To analyze the evolution of stromal cells and identify hematopoietic cells able to develop in these conditions, we performed morphology, histochemistry, and immunohistology on tissue sections at different times after transplantation. When injected alone, MS-5 cells differentiate into adipocytes. When injected with a bone marrow suspension or with isolated CD45+ cells (leukocytes), the stromal cells keep their fibroblastic morphology and their alkaline phosphatase expression and sustain granulopoiesis. When injected with hematopoietic stem cells called c-kit+ Sca-1+ Lin- suspension, clusters of hematopoietic cells are also observed: They do not present any granulopoietic activity and do not belong to B or T population nor to erythroid lineage. They are quiescent, induce bone marrow recovery and survival of lethally irradiated recipients, are able to form macroscopic colonies in the spleen, and are able to form very few colonies in vitro, suggesting that they are hematopoietic stem cells. In conclusion, our results show that reticular fibroblastic stromal cells MS-5 sustain the survival of stem cells and are not able to induce their differentiation. However, they can control differentiation, proliferation, and/or survival of hematopoietic cells engaged in myeloid lineage. [less ▲]

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), its receptors (VEGFR-1, VEGFR-2) and neuropillin-1 (NRP-1) are expressed at variable levels in bone marrow. NRP-1expression is higher in fatty bone marrow than in hematopoietic marrow. Adipocytes are responsible for NRP-1 expression suggesting that they may play a role in hematopoiesis by producing NRP-1 or that NRP-1 may regulate adipocyte activity. [less ▲]

Attempts were made to establish models to study interactions between marrow stromal cells and hematopoietic cells in vivo. The approach was to create a NOD-SCID-hu murine model of long-term human hematopoiesis by implantation of a human adult bone fragment. Nine to 12 weeks posuransplantation, human CD45(+) cells were detected in the blood and the spleen of some mice. The histology of the human transplant showed that human bone fragment was viable at 9 weeks. Moreover, vessels of human origin, as assessed by immunohistochemical detection of human beta(2)-microglobulin, were observed in the mouse tissue surrounding the transplanted human fragment.
