Phosphoproteome analyses reveal specific implications of Hcls1, p21-activated kinase 1 and Ezrin in proliferation of a myeloid progenitor cell line downstream of wild-type and ITD mutant Fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 receptors.

The tyrosine kinase receptor Flt3 (Fms-like tyrosine kinase 3) is almost always expressed in AML (acute myeloid leukemia) cells, and constitutive activation of Flt3 by ITD (internal tandem duplication) mutations is one of the most common molecular alterations known in AML, especially monocytic AML. Furthermore, Flt3-ligand (FL) was shown as an in vitro… CONTINUE READING
