Example sentences for: abl

How can you use “abl” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The new drugs bind to ABL in an “open” conformation, as opposed to imatinib, which binds ABL in a “closed” conformation [12,13].

  • In contrast to the spatially restricted functions of CAP, Ena, and Abl, profilin and cofilin were shown to regulate actin filament formation throughout the cell cortex, a more global function that matches the results obtained in cell culture experiments.

  • Such mutations, which cluster in four distinct regions of the ABL kinase domain (the ATP binding loop, T315, M351, and the activation loop), interfere with binding of imatinib to ABL [9,10,11].

  • These target proteins include the c-Abl tyrosine kinase, the p53 tumor suppressor, the Chk1 and Chk2 serine/threoine kinase, the p34 subunit of replication protein A (RPA), Chk1 serine/threoine kinase and NBS1 kinase which is mutated in human autosomal recessive disease Nijmegan breakage syndrome [ 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 ] . Clinical characteristics of AT patients include hypersensitivity to irradiation, thymic dysplasia, immune defects and higher tendency to develop malignant tumor, suggesting that ATM function is critical in DNA damage repair and tumor suppression.

  • The proto-oncogene TEL (Translocation, Ets, Leukemia) is a transcriptional repressor that contains a C-terminal Ets family DNA binding domain; a central domain that together with co-repressors recruit histone deacetylases [ 1 2 3 ] ; and an N-terminal SAM (sterile, alpha, motif) domain [ 4 5 6 ] , which we have recently shown forms a polymer [ 7 ] . Chromosomal translocations in a variety of leukemias result in fusion of the SAM domain of TEL to tyrosine kinase domains such as ABL, PDGFβ and JAK2 [ 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 ] or to the transcriptional activators AML1 and ARNT [ 15 16 17 ] . In the tyrosine kinase fusions, SAM domain polymerization leads to constitutive activation of the tyrosine kinase domains, which leads in turn to cell transformation [ 10 12 18 19 ] . Thus, compounds that block TEL-SAM polymerization could be effective in treating these leukemias.
