The paper by Lai et al.  showed that inhibition of PP-2A with LB100 or LB102 in conjunction with Tyrosine kinase Inhibitors (TKIs) was effective at targeting BCR-ABL + blast cells and insensitive leukemic stem cells (LSCs). Perotti et al.  has severely criticised the paper by Lai et al . However, Perotti et al.  has failed to appreciate an important principle of the role of PP-2A as a tumor suppressor and its regulation in the cell, namely that in general, PP-2A dephosphoryltes and inactivates enzymes and proteins that upregulate cell proliferation, cell survival, tumorigenic and metastasizing pathways but with a limited number of of enzymes and proteins, PP-2A acts to upregulate them. Thus, PP-2A is a double-edge sword and modulation of its activity must be calibrated empirically. Also, Perotti et al.  has misunderstood an important principle of enzyme regulation, namely that PP-2A is regulated by inhibitory and activating molecules and not through "targeting proteins" which has not been scientifically verified. It is submitted that the paper by Lai et al.  has strong merit as it shows for the first time that an inhibitor of PP-2A can synergize with a TKI.
