• constitutively active
  • The bcr-abl gene is constitutively active (meaning it does not require activation by other proteins), and sends signals to activate proteins and enzymes which speed up cellular division and can lead to the formation of abnormal white blood cells that proliferate to the point that they interfere with normal blood cell production, leading to leukemia.

  • interacts
  • The fused BCR-ABL protein interacts with the interleukin-3 receptor beta(c) subunit and is moderated by an activation loop within its SH1 domain, which is turned "on" when bound to ATP and triggers downstream pathways. (wikipedia.org)
