Background: The chemokine receptor CXCR4 plays a role in AML. Results: SDF-1, the ligand of CXCR4, induces apoptosis in AML cell lines and patient samples via modulation of Bcl-2 family members. Conclusion: SDF-1 induces apoptosis of AML cells via up-regulation of Bak and Noxa and down-regulation of Bcl-XL. Significance: SDF-1/CXCR4 signaling could induce AML cell apoptosis if bone marrow survival cues can be disrupted.
