Abstract Text Patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-rearranged non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) derive significant clinic benefit from treatment with ALK inhibitors. Crizotinib was the first approved tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) for this distinct molecular subset of NSCLC. Disease progression on TKI inevitably arises secondary to diverse resistance mechanisms among which emergence of secondary ALK mutations is one of many ways in which tumor cells have adapted to survive. Therefore there is a clinical imperative to identify acquired ALK mutations via repeat tissue biopsy if clinically feasible. If such is present, switching to a different TKI with known clinical activities against the emergent resistance mutation (s) may pose a viable treatment option. Here we report for the first time a novel ALK T1151K mutation in a patient with metastatic ALK-rearranged NSCLC who progressed on crizotinib and then ceritinib. The co-crystal structure of ceritinib/ALK demonstrates a strong interaction between ceritinib and the P-loop which is facilitated by T1151 on the β3 sheet, a feature not present in the alectinib/ALK or lorlatinib/ALK co-crystal structure. It is predicated that the T1151K mutation weakens these interactions leading to drug resistance, or causes conformational changes of the ALK catalytic domain resulting in higher affinity for ATP and therefore diminished inhibitor binding. We conclude that the T1151K ALK mutation confers resistance to ceritinib, which may be rescued by alectinib or lorlatinib as evidenced by this clinical narrative.

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (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 a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • 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.

ALK T1151M missense unknown ALK T1151M lies within the protein kinase domain and inhibitor binding region of the Alk protein (UniProt.org). T1151M has been demonstrated to occur as a secondary drug resistance mutation in the context of ALK fusions (PMID: 28676215, PMID: 27009859), but has not been biochemically characterized and therefore, its effect on Alk protein function is unknown (PubMed, Apr 2020).
