Abstract The Myb protein was first identified as an oncogene that causes leukemia in chickens. Since then, it has been widely associated with different types of cancers and studied in detail in myeloid leukemias. However, despite these studies, its role in the induction, pathogenesis and maintenance of AML, and other blood disorders, is still not well understood. Recent efforts to uncover its plethora of transcriptional targets have provided key insights into understanding its mechanism of action. This review evaluates our current knowledge of the role of Myb in leukemia, with a particular focus on AML, from the vast literature spanning three decades, highlighting key studies that have influenced our understanding.We discuss recent insights intoits role in leukemogenesis and how these could be exploited for the therapeutic targeting of Myb, its associated co-regulators or its target genes,in order to improve outcomes in the treatment of a wide range of hematopoietic malignancies.
