CD22 is a membrane immunoglobulin (mIg)-associated protein of B cells. CD22 is tyrosine-phosphorylated when mIg is ligated. Tyrosine-phosphorylated CD22 binds and activates SHP, a protein tyrosine phosphatase known to negatively regulate signaling through mIg. Ligation of CD22 to prevent its coaggregation with mIg lowers the threshold at which mIg activates(More)
Polycythemia vera (PV) is an acquired clonal disorder characterized by increased production of mature red cells and growth of erythroid colonies in the absence of erythropoietin. Mutation of the erythropoietin receptor has been demonstrated to cause familial polycythemia, but no mutations have been found in PV. Moreover, both erythroid and myeloid(More)
We wish to identify developmental changes in germinal center B cells that may contribute to their rapid growth. SHP-1 is an SH2 domain-containing phosphotyrosine phosphatase that negatively regulates activation of B cells and other cells of hematopoietic lineages. We have found that in all 13 EBV-negative and 11 EBV-positive Burkitt lymphomas with a(More)
