SCYL3-NTRK1, HEAT repeats with an active kinase

An exciting and perplexing new TrkA fusion: SCYL3-NTRK1. Yes, we have yet another chromosome 1 intra-chromosome rearrangement with NTRK1. This time it is with a rather poorly understood protein whose gene name is SCYL3 and protein name is PACE1 (Protein-associating

LMNA-NTRK1, weaving kinase domains into a fabric

Lamins A and C are alternatively spliced products of the LMNA gene. Lamins are considered nuclear intermediate filaments. Lamins are components of the nuclear lamina. The nuclear lamina lines the nucleoplasmic side of the nuclear membrane. Diseases caused by variations

Entrectinib Sensitivity Associated With a Novel LMNA-NTRK1 Gene Fusion

The following is a summary of a report that inspired the reference on the LMNA-NTRK1 fusion. Sartore-Bianchi and coworkers who mapped the location of this carcinogenic fusion protein. Things to note in this report:  1. The authors demonstrated phosphorylation of enzymes
