Expression of the FMS/KIT-like gene FLT3 in human acute leukemias of the myeloid and lymphoid lineages.


FLT3, a receptor belonging to the FMS/KIT family and localized to 13q12, could play a role in the biology of early hematopoietic progenitor cells. Because FMS and KIT are expressed in both normal progenitors and myeloid leukemias, we looked for FLT3 expression in fresh human leukemic cells using Northern blot analysis. High levels of FLT3 expression were… (More)
