Pluripotent hematopoietic stem cells and multipotent myeloid/lymphoid progenitors express miR-221 and miR-222. When Pax5 expression commits these progenitors to monopotent pre-B lymphocytes the two microRNAs (miRNAs) are downregulated. Upon transplantation, stem cells and progenitors can reside in the BM, while pre-B cells, after their commitment, no longer do so. Retrovirally transduced, doxycycline-induced overexpression of either miR-221 or miR-222 in pre-B-I cells does not revert their monopotency to multipotency. However, upon transplantation miR-221, but not miR-222, transduced pre-B-I cells regain the capacity to reside in the BM. Upon subsequent termination of miR-221-expression by removal of doxycycline, the transplanted cells leave the BM again. Microarray analyses identified 25 downregulated miR-221-target genes, which could function to localize phases of B-lymphocyte development in BM before and after commitment.
