Linking inflammation and hypertension via LNK/SH2B3.
Nashville, United States. In Curr Opin Nephrol Hypertens, Jan 2016
Genome-wide association studies identified a single-nucleotide polymorphism in the gene SH2B3 encoding the lymphocyte adaptor protein, LNK, but, until recently, little was known about how LNK contributes to hypertension.
Recurrent Coding Sequence Variation Explains Only A Small Fraction of the Genetic Architecture of Colorectal Cancer.
Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In Sci Rep, 2014
Single-variant analysis identified a coding variant (rs3184504) in SH2B3 (12q24) associated with CRC risk (OR = 1.08, P = 3.9 × 10(-7)), and novel damaging coding variants in 3 genes previously tagged by GWAS efforts; rs16888728 (8q24) in UTP23 (OR = 1.15, P = 1.4 × 10(-7)); rs6580742 and rs12303082 (12q13) in FAM186A (OR = 1.11, P = 1.2 × 10(-7) and OR = 1.09, P = 7.4 × 10(-8)); rs1129406 (12q13) in ATF1 (OR = 1.11, P = 8.3 × 10(-9)), all reaching exome-wide significance levels.
Targetable kinase-activating lesions in Ph-like acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Memphis, United States. In N Engl J Med, 2014
Kinase-activating alterations were identified in 91% of patients with Ph-like ALL; rearrangements involving ABL1, ABL2, CRLF2, CSF1R, EPOR, JAK2, NTRK3, PDGFRB, PTK2B, TSLP, or TYK2 and sequence mutations involving FLT3, IL7R, or SH2B3 were most common.
The landscape of somatic mutations in Down syndrome-related myeloid disorders.
Tokyo, Japan. In Nat Genet, 2013
Subsequent AMKL evolves from a pre-existing TAM clone through the acquisition of additional mutations, with major mutational targets including multiple cohesin components (53%), CTCF (20%), and EZH2, KANSL1 and other epigenetic regulators (45%), as well as common signaling pathways, such as the JAK family kinases, MPL, SH2B3 (LNK) and multiple RAS pathway genes (47%).
