Abstract

Introduction of genes for cytokine receptors into hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSC/HPC) may be of clinical use in the future. We recently reported that retroviral-mediated transduction of either the human erythropoietin receptor (hEpoR) or interleukin-9 receptor (hIL-9R) genes into highly purified HSC/HPC from cord blood (CB) resulted in increased numbers of detectable cytokine-responsive erythroid progenitors (burst-forming units-erythroid [BFU-E]). In the present study, we evaluated if this increase could be further enhanced by cotransducing both these genes into single isolated HSC/HPC. Single CD34++CD33(- or low)-expressing cells from CB were transduced with viral supernatant containing the hEpoR or hIL-9R genes or cotransduced with both genes. In the presence of Steel factor (SLF), interleukin-3 (IL-3), granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), erythropoietin (Epo), and IL-9, the numbers of erythroid colonies formed were significantly increased after transduction of cells with either the hIL-9R or hEpoR gene compared to mock-transduced cells. This increase was significantly enhanced in cells cotransduced with both genes compared with either gene alone. Integration and expression of both genes was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and reverse-transcriptase (RT)-PCR analysis, respectively. The data demonstrate that myeloid progenitors can be transduced at the single-cell level with both hEpoR and hIL-9R genes with resultant enhanced proliferation of these progenitors in the erythroid lineage by combinations of cytokines including Epo and IL-9.
