Calreticulin gene exon 9 frameshift mutations in patients with thrombocytosis


Somatic frameshift mutations in exon 9 of the calreticulin (CALR) gene were recently identified in patients with BCRABL-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), particularly essential thrombocythemia and myelofibrosis. Calreticulin is a highly conserved endoplasmic reticulum (ER) luminal Ca2þ -binding chaperone protein with a critical role in the… (More)
