Genes involved and Proteins

Gene NameNFKB2
Location 10q24.32
Protein The gene encodes a subunit of the transcription factor complex nuclear factor-kappa-B. NFKB2 is a rapidly acting primary transcription factor found in all cell types. It is involved in the cellular responses to stimuli such as cytokines and stress and plays a key role in regulating the immunological response to infections.
Gene NameROS1
Location 6q22.1
Protein This proto-oncogene belongs to the subfamily of tyrosine kinase insulin receptor genes and expresses in a variety of tumor cell lines. ROS1 is an integral membrane protein with tyrosine kinase activity, that may function as a growth or differentiation factor receptor.

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Hybrid gene
Note 5' NFKB2 - 3' ROS1
Description Nucleotide sequence analyses revealed that NFKB2 (exon 1-13) is fused to the intracytoplasmic domain of ROS1 accompanied by loss of the NFKB2 ankyrin region, that is necessary for the translation of constitutively active NFKB-fusion proteins and its oncogenic role [Crescenzo et al., 2015].
Fusion Protein
Oncogenesis NFKB2/ROS1 is a chimeric transcription factor with oncogenic potential that leads to the constitutive activation of STAT3 in the absence of either JAK-STAT3 mutations. The ectopic expression of NFKB2/ROS1 is associated with the phosphorylation of JAK (JAK2 - JAK3) and STAT3. NFKB2/ROS1 fusion induces the expression of genes involved in membrane trafficking, replication, protein export, TNF signaling, T cell activation. This, in turn, may lead to a widespread derangement of several metabolic and signaling pathways, which ultimately concur to neoplastic transformation [Crescenzo et al., 2015, Tabbo et al, 2016].
