Example sentences for: abl

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

  • 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.

  • Mutations in the ABL kinase domain are found in 50%–90% of patients with secondary resistance to the drug (reviewed in [8]).

  • 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.

  • Imatinib (Gleevec), a 2-phenylaminopyrimidine, is a competitive inhibitor of ATP binding to the ABL kinase, thereby inhibiting the constitutively activated BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase.

  • This fact is reflected in the analysis of literature profiles, as groups of genes could be found to be associated with brain tissues (Figure 7f, for example, HPCA (hippocalcin), SYP (synaptophysin), GRIK1 (glutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 1), APLP (amyloid beta A4 precursor-like protein)), immune cells (Figure 7b, for example, CD40, IL15RA (IL-15 receptor, alpha chain), LILB4 (leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor 4)) or tumor cells (Figure 7a, for example, MYBL1 (v- myb avian myeloblastosis viral oncogene), ABL2 (v- abl Abelson murine leukemia viral oncogene homolog 2)).
