Deletion of an N-terminal regulatory domain of the c-abl tyrosine kinase activates its oncogenic potential.


The requirements for the oncogenic conversion of the c-abl proto-oncogene have been determined by the expression of N-terminal deleted forms and viral gag-fused forms of the c-abl proteins from a selectable retroviral vector. To activate the transforming potential of c-abl, it is necessary that (i) specific N-terminal amino acids are deleted to release the… (More)
