Abstract Text An emerging theme in cancer biology is that although some malignancies occur through the sequential acquisition of different genetic alterations, certain dominantly acting oncoproteins such as those associated with chromosomal translocations have multiple functions and do not require additional mutations for cell transformation. The ETV6-NTRK3 (EN) chimeric tyrosine kinase, a potent oncoprotein expressed in tumors derived from multiple cell lineages, functions as a constitutively active protein tyrosine kinase. Here, we show that EN suppresses TGF-beta signaling by directly binding to the type II TGF-beta receptor, thereby preventing it from interacting with the type I TGF-beta receptor. This activity requires a functional EN protein tyrosine kinase, and type II TGF-beta receptor appears to be a direct target of EN. Our findings provide evidence for a previously undescribed mechanism by which oncogenic tyrosine kinases can block TGF-beta tumor suppressor activity.


  • 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"


  • 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.
