Scientific Background : TET2 is a methylcytosine dioxygenase that catalyzes the conversion of methylcytosine to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine which is involved in myelopoiesis. Defects in TET2 gene have been associated with several myeloproliferative disorders. TET2 play an important role in embryonic stem cell maintenance and inner cell mass cell specification. TET proteins have potential roles in epigenetic regulation through modification of 5mC to 5hmC (1). TET2 enzymatic activity is involved in myeloid tumorigenesis and this could be valuable as a diagnostic and prognostic tool for targeted therapies and to assess responses to anticancer drugs (2).
