Scientific Background :ROS1 is a proto-oncogene and member of the sevenless subfamily of tyrosine kinase insulin receptor genes. ROS1 is highly-expressed in a variety of tumor cell lines and functions as a growth or differentiation factor receptor. The FIG gene can fuse with the ROS1 gene in glioblastoma cell lines (1). The resulting ROS1/FIG fusion protein is a constitutively activated tyrosine kinase. Direct interaction of ROS1 and the phosphatase SHP-1 can lead to efficient downregulation of ROS1-mediated signaling (2). Binding sites in the ROS1 cytoplasmic domain display high affinity binding to the SHP-1 N-terminal SH2 domain.
