Alterations in the PITSLRE protein kinase gene complex on chromosome 1p36 in childhood neuroblastoma.

p58cdc2L1, a protein kinase implicated in apoptotic signaling, is one of eight separate kinases encoded by three tandemly duplicated and linked genes, which we have termed PITSLRE A, B and C. One allele of this complex on chromosome 1 was either deleted or translocated in each of 18 neuroblastoma cell lines with cytogenetically apparent 1p alterations. A protein encoded by this locus, PITSLRE gamma 1, was absent in three of the lines and a smaller, apparently truncated, PITSLRE polypeptide was found in another line. These findings identify a novel gene complex on chromosome 1 that encodes a protein kinase subfamily. We suggest that the PITSLRE locus may harbour one or more tumour suppressor genes affected by chromosome 1p36 modifications in neuroblastoma.[1]
