Warnings and Precautions
This reagent has been prepared from the supernatant of cell culture. As it is a biological product,
reasonable care should be taken when handling it.
This reagent contains sodium azide. A Material Safety Data Sheet is available upon request or
available from www.LeicaBiosystems.com
p80 is encoded by a hybrid gene that occurs as a result of the chromosomal translocation, t(2;5)
(p23;q35). The protein consists of the amino terminus of the nucleophosmin (NPM) gene fused
to the catalytic domain of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Full-length ALK is a 1620 amino
acid protein that exhibits 57% amino acid identity to leukocyte tyrosine kinase (LTK). The mature
form of ALK is a 200 kD glycosylated single chain molecule that occurs on the surface of cell
membranes and probably acts as a ligand receptor.
