Ontario Cancer Institute, Toronto, ON, Canada
Cancer Metastasis Rev 27:179-92. 2008..Elucidation of the events underlying Shp2-evoked transformation may provide new insights into oncogenic mechanisms and novel targets for anti-cancer therapy...
- Essential role for Ptpn11 in survival of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cellsGordon Chan
Cancer Biology Program, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA
Blood 117:4253-61. 2011..Thus, Shp2 plays a critical role in controlling the survival and maintenance of HSCs and immature progenitors in vivo...
- Erk1 and Erk2 are required for maintenance of hematopoietic stem cells and adult hematopoiesisGordon Chan
Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute, Ontario Cancer Institute and Princess Margaret Hospital, and
Blood 121:3594-8. 2013..Moreover, in cells transformed by the oncogenic KRas(G12D) allele, the presence of either Erk1 or Erk2 with intact kinase activity is sufficient to promote cytokine-independent proliferation...
- Leukemogenic Ptpn11 causes fatal myeloproliferative disorder via cell-autonomous effects on multiple stages of hematopoiesisGordon Chan
Department of Stem Cell and Developmental Biology, Ontario Cancer Institute, Toronto, ON, Canada
Blood 113:4414-24. 2009..Our studies provide a mouse model for Ptpn11-evoked MPD and show that this disease results from cell-autonomous and distinct lineage-specific effects of mutant Ptpn11 on multiple stages of hematopoiesis...
