ANKHD1, ankyrin repeat and KH domain containing 1, is overexpressed in acute leukemias and is associated with SHP2 in K562 cells.

Abstract

In the present study, increased levels of ANKHD1 mRNA and protein expression in leukemia cell lines are reported, as compared with normal hematopoietic cells. Furthermore, a higher expression of ANKHD1 mRNA was detected in primary acute leukemia samples than in normal hematopoietic cells (P=0.002). ANKHD1 was detected in the cytosolic and membrane fraction of cells and was co-immunoprecipitated with SHP2 in protein extracts of K562 and LNCaP cell lines. These findings suggest a role for ANKHD1 as a scaffolding protein that may be associated with the abnormal phenotype of leukemia cells.
