Anaplastic lymphoma kinase

Anaplastic lymphoma kinase

Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (Ki-1), also known as ALK, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: ALK anaplastic lymphoma kinase (Ki-1)| url =| accessdate = ] cite journal | author = Morris SW, Kirstein MN, Valentine MB, Dittmer KG, Shapiro DN, Saltman DL, Look AT' | title = Fusion of a kinase gene, ALK, to a nucleolar protein gene, NPM, in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma | journal = Science (journal) | volume = 263 | issue = 5151 | pages = 1281–4 | year = 1994 | month = March | pmid = 8122112 | doi = 10.1126/science.8122112 | url = | issn = ]


The 2;5 chromosomal translocation is frequently associated with anaplastic large cell lymphomas (ALCLs). The translocation creates a fusion gene consisting of the ALK (anaplastic lymphoma kinase) gene and the nucleophosmin (NPM) gene: the 3' half of ALK, derived from chromosome 2, is fused to the 5' portion of NPM from chromosome 5. The product of the NPM-ALK fusion gene is oncogenic. The deduced amino acid sequences reveal that ALK is a novel receptor tyrosine kinase having a putative transmembrane domain and an extracellular domain. These sequences are absent in the product of the transforming NPM-ALK gene. ALK shows the greatest sequence similarity to LTK (leukocyte tyrosine kinase). ALK plays an important role in the development of the brain and exerts its effects on specific neurons in the nervous system.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: ALK anaplastic lymphoma kinase (Ki-1)| url =| accessdate = ]

Disease linkage

Recent study shows that mutation of ALK "are strongly linked to out-of-control cell proliferation and neuroblastoma", a deadly childhood form of cancer.cite web | url =,+2008 | title = Gene That Causes Childhood Cancer Neuroblastoma Is Found | author = | authorlink = | coauthors = | date = | format = | work = PRNewswire-USNewswire | publisher = | pages = | language = | archiveurl = | archivedate = | quote = | accessdate = 2008-08-26]
