TRKing Down an Old Oncogene in a New Era of Targeted Therapy.
Aurora, United States. In Cancer Discov, 19 Jan 2015
These recent developments have led us to revisit an old oncogene, Trk (originally identified as OncD), which encodes the TPM3-NTRK1 gene fusion and was one of the first transforming chromosomal rearrangements identified 32 years ago.
Anchored multiplex PCR for targeted next-generation sequencing.
Boston, United States. In Nat Med, Dec 2014
On the basis of our experience with performing AMP on 986 clinical FFPE samples, we show its potential as both a robust clinical assay and a powerful discovery tool, which we used to identify new therapeutically important gene fusions: ARHGEF2-NTRK1 and CHTOP-NTRK1 in glioblastoma, MSN-ROS1, TRIM4-BRAF, VAMP2-NRG1, TPM3-NTRK1 and RUFY2-RET in lung cancer, FGFR2-CREB5 in cholangiocarcinoma and PPL-NTRK1 in thyroid carcinoma.
Targeting tropomyosin-receptor kinase fused gene in cancer.
Taipei, Taiwan. In Anticancer Res, Apr 2014
Tropomyosin-receptor kinase fused gene (TRK-fused gene, TFG) encodes a protein which is a conserved regulator of protein secretion that localizes in the endoplasmic reticulum exit sites and controls the export of materials from the endoplasmic reticulum.

Structurally, TRPV1 subunits have six transmembrane (TM) domains with intracellular N- (containing 6 ankyrin-like repeats) and C-termini and a pore region between TM5 and TM6 containing sites that are important for channel activation and ion selectivity.
