Fusion proteins bcr-abl

Fusion proteins, bcr-abl

translation products of a fusion mrna derived from the breakpoint cluster region (bcr) gene and a cellular abl (c-abl) gene translocated to chromosome 22. The p210(bcr-abl) fusion protein is found in patients with chronic myelogenous leukaemia. The p190(bcr-abl) fusion protein is found in patients with acute lymphocytic leukaemia. The activation of human c-abl by chromosomal translocation is essentially the same as the activation of murine c-abl by viral translocation in abelson murine leukaemia virus.

cancers, chromosome mutations

... not cause like short indels, changes in bases etc. But they can cause fusion proteins due to fused chromosome parts. There are some well known examples involved in cancer.

GFP fusion protein not expressing!

Hi there, I tried to make a GFP fusion protein (my gene of interest was fused to the C terminal of GFP) but no expression occured...I tested the expression of the two proteins alone and individually they worked but not when fused together..I tried a linker between ...

Re: Protein expression but no mRNA

... the cultured primary cells? I doubt that would be the case because on fusion of the endosome with a lysosome the proteins in the vesicle are usually degraded by the lysosomal enzymes. For the protein to enter ...
