Bone marrow necrosis

Common Name(s)

Bone marrow necrosis

In bone marrow necrosis, there is poor circulation of oxygen and nutrients to the bone marrow cells, causing the cells to die. Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside some of your bones, such as your hip and thigh bones. It contains immature cells, called stem cells. The stem cells can develop into the red blood cells that carry oxygen through your body, the white blood cells that fight infections, and the platelets that help with blood clotting. Bone marrow necrosis often causes fever and bone pain, and is associated with blood cancers, in particular acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) although it can be associated with other cancers and non-cancerous conditions (e.g., sickle cell anemia, tuberculosis, infection, and sepsis).

Author(s): Jean-Yves Tano, Robert H Lee, Guillermo Vazquez

Journal: Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun.. 2012 Oct;427(1):178-84.

 

We previously showed that survival signaling in TNF╬▒-treated, human THP1-derived macrophages (TDMs) has an obligatory requirement for constitutive Ca(2+) influx through a mechanism involving calmodulin/calmodulin kinase II (CAM/CAMKII). We also demonstrated that such requirement ...
