The SPI1 (PU.1) transcription factor represses self renewal and proliferation of HSCs (Fukuchi et al. 2008) and is needed for commitment of HSCs to specific hematopoietic lineages (Imperato et al. 2015), for example differentiation of lymphoid cells. SPI1 gene transcription is directly stimulated by the RUNX1:CBFB transcription factor complex, in the presence of the activating histone methyltransferase KMT2A (MLL) (Huang et al. 2011).
