- Mutations in PTPN11 implicate the SHP-2 phosphatase in leukemogenesisMignon L Loh
Department of Pediatrics, University of California, Rm HSE 302 Box 0519, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
Blood 103:2325-31. 2004..We conclude that SHP-2 is an important cellular PTPase that is mutated in myeloid malignancies. Further investigation is required to clarify how these mutant proteins interact with Ras and other effectors to deregulate myeloid growth...
