PERSONAL SKILLS AND COMPETENCES: Francesco Fazi has a long experience in the field of molecular mechanisms regulating growth and differentiation on a variety of normal and neoplastic cell systems and has been involved in studies showing novel oncogenic mechanisms for the leukemia-associated fusion proteins and the role of epigenetic mechanisms in the differentiation block and therapy response of Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Francesco Fazi is also involved in different multidisciplinary collaborations investigating the transcriptional regulation and the functional characterization of different microRNA in normal and pathological cell fate determination. Currently, Francesco Fazi is coordinating a multidisciplinary study highlighting that RA-induced differentiation of human APL cell lines and primary blasts dramatically increases their sensitivity to doses of ER stress-inducing drugs not toxic in the absence of RA, and that the PERK pathway, plays a main protective role. This study evidenced also that low amounts of pharmacologically induced ER stress are sufficient to strongly increase arsenic trioxide (ATO) toxicity in RA-sensitive and RA-resistant APL cell lines, at doses ineffective in the absence of ER stress. Thus, the ER stress-related pathways could be interesting targets to design novel combination therapies in non-APL AML cells. Of note, from his research is emerging that the triple combination of the differentiating agent retinoic acid (RA), the ER stress-inducing drug tunicamycin (Tm), and arsenic trioxide (ATO), able to generate oxidative stress, leads to the death of AML cell lines expressing fusion proteins involving the gene MLL and the internal tandem duplication (ITD) in the FLT3 tyrosine kinase receptor.
The impact of Francesco Fazi contribution to his own research field is evidenced by the quality of the scientific publications in which these results have been published and the considerable attention that received from the scientific community.
