Aberrant chromosomal fusion of the Ewing’s sarcoma oncogene (EWS) to several different cellular partners produces the Ewing’s family of oncoproteins (EWS-fusion-proteins, EFPs) and associated tumors (EFTs). EFPs are potent transcriptional activators, dependent on the N-terminal region of EWS (the EWS-activation-domain, EAD) and this function is thought to(More)
