Isoform Of Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase And Its Uses


The present invention relates to a Truncated isoform of Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (“TALK”). Expression of this isoform is associated with malignancy and with responsiveness to ALK inhibitors. Detection of the isoform may be used in diagnostic and therapeutic methods. Because it arises as a result of variant transcription rather than genetic rearrangement, its presence would be undetected by genomic testing.
