A somatic point mutation (V617F) in the JAK2 tyrosine kinase was found in a majority of patients with polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia, and primary myelofibrosis. However, contribution of the JAK2V617F mutation in these 3 clinically distinct myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) remained unclear. To investigate the role of JAK2V617F in the(More)
Janus kinase 2 (Jak2) protein tyrosine kinase plays an important role in interleukin-3- or granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor-mediated signal transduction pathways leading to cell proliferation, activation of early response genes, and inhibition of apoptosis. However, it is unclear whether Jak2 can activate these signaling pathways directly(More)
