Title Uniform sensitivity of FLT3 activation loop mutants to the tyrosine kinase inhibitor midostaurin.
Journal Blood
Vol 110
Issue 13
Date 2007 Dec 15
Abstract Text Small molecule inhibitors that target fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3)-activating mutations have potential in the treatment of leukemias. However, certain mutations can simultaneously activate the tyrosine kinase, and confer resistance to small molecule inhibitors. We therefore tested the sensitivity of 8 FLT3 activation loop mutants to midostaurin. Each mutant conferred IL-3 factor-independent proliferation to Ba/F3 cells, and each resulted in the constitutive activation of FLT3 and its targets, signal transducer and activator of transcription 5 (STAT5) and extracellular stimuli-responsive kinase (ERK). For each mutant tested, midostaurin inhibited cell growth and phosphorylation of FLT3, STAT5, and ERK. In contrast, midostaruin did not inhibit Ba/F3 cells stably transduced with FLT3-internal tandem duplications containing a G697R mutation that confers resistance to midostaurin, demonstrating that midostaurin inhibition of FLT3 activation loop mutants was not due to off-target effects. We conclude that midostaurin is a potent inhibitor of a spectrum of FLT3 activation loop mutations, and that acute myeloid leukemia patients with such mutations are potential candidates for clinical trials involving midostaurin.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.

FLT3 G697R missense unknown FLT3 G697R lies within the protein kinase domain of the Flt3 protein ( G697R has been demonstrated to occur as a secondary resistance mutation in the context of FLT3 internal tandem duplication (FLT3-ITD) mutations (PMID: 15374944, PMID: 22875611, PMID: 17827387), but has not been biochemically characterized and therefore, its effect on Flt3 protein function is unknown (PubMed, Apr 2023).
