In this issue of Blood Cancer Discovery, Kodgule, Goldman, Monovichet al. cleverly analyzed the transcription regulatory elements to investigate why the second copy of ETV6 is often lost in ETV6::RUNX1-translocated in B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL). It turns out that ETV6 suppresses the enhancer activity of GGAA microsatellite repeats, preventing ERG from subverting them to activate aberrant oncogene transcription.
