Submitter Supplied Information

Gain-of-function mutations in NOTCH1 are common in T-cell lymphoblastic leukemias making this receptor a promising target for drugs such as gamma-secretase inhibitors, which block a proteolytic cleavage required for NOTCH1 activation. However, the enthusiasm for these therapies has been tempered by tumor resistance and the paucity of information on the oncogenic programs regulated by oncogenic NOTCH1. Here we show that NOTCH1 regulates PTEN expression and the activity of the PI3K-AKT signaling pathway in normal and leukemic T cells. Notch signaling and the PI3K-AKT pathway synergize in vivo in a Drosophila model of Notch-induced tumorigenesis, and mutational loss of PTEN is associated with increased glycolysis and resistance to NOTCH1 inhibition in human T-ALL. These findings identify the transcriptional regulation of PTEN and the control of cellular metabolism as key elements of the oncogenic program activated by NOTCH1 and provide the basis for the design of new therapeutic strategies for T-ALL.
