Acquired somatic mutations in the transcription factor GATA1 are a defining feature of acute megakaryocytic leukemia in children with Down syndrome. A new study shows that similar inherited GATA1 mutations do not promote leukemia in the absence of trisomy 21 but lead to defects in multiple hematopoietic lineages.
