CRKL has previously been shown to be a major tyrosine phosphorylated protein in neutrophils of patients with BCR-ABL+ chronic myelogenous leukemia and in cell lines expressing BCR-ABL CRKL and BCR-ABL form a complex as demonstrated by coimmunoprecipitation and are capable of a direct interaction in a yeast two-hybrid assay. We have mapped the site of(More)
The Philadelphia chromosome, detected in virtually all cases of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), is formed by a reciprocal translocation between chromosomes 9 and 22 that fuses BCR-encoded sequences upstream of exon 2 of c-ABL. The BCR-ABL fusion creates a gene whose protein product, p210BCR-ABL, has been implicated as the cause of the disease. Although(More)
A 62-kDa Ras GTPase-activating protein (RasGAP)-associated protein is tyrosine-phosphorylated under a variety of circumstances including growth factor stimulation and in cells transformed by activated tyrosine kinases. A cDNA for p62(dok), reported to be the RasGAP-associated 62-kDa protein, was recently cloned from Abl-transformed cells. In this study, the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the contribution of Abl kinase and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-kinase) to the altered adhesive properties and cytoskeletal defects in a Bcr-Abl transformed fibroblast cell model. MATERIALS ANID METHODS: Two fibroblast cell lines stably transfected with Bcr-Abl were compared to their parental(More)
Cbl is one of the major tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins in Bcr-Abl-expressing cells. A direct association between the SH2 domain of Bcr-Abl and tyrosine-phosphorylated Cbl has been demonstrated. The purpose of this study was to determine if and how unphosphorylated Cbl and Bcr-Abl may associate. Interactions between Cbl and Bcr-Abl were investigated in(More)
Identification of constructs suitable for the recombinant protein production pipeline is a bottleneck for structural genomics efforts, as most methods require purified proteins and/or are labor-intensive. Here, we present a novel high-throughput approach, Binding Rate Screen, that can alleviate this bottleneck by screening expression constructs in crude(More)
BACKGROUND Warts are known to clear spontaneously with the development of cell-mediated immunity (CMI) to the virus. Purified protein derivative (PPD) of tuberculin bacilli has been used as a non-specific stimulant of CMI to achieve this outcome. AIM To study the effect of PPD in the treatment of warts. METHODS Patients with difficult-to-treat warts(More)
The SH2-SH3 domain-containing adaptor protein CRKL is the predominant tyrosine phosphorylated protein in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) neutrophils and BCR-ABL-expressing cell lines. The amino terminal CRKL SH3 domain binds directly to a proline-rich region in the C-terminus of BCR-ABL. BCR-ABL mutants with deletions of this region were constructed to(More)
