Tel-Abl and Tel-Jak2 are fusion proteins associated with human haematologic neoplasms. They possess constitutive tyrosine kinase activity and activate common downstream signalling pathways like Stat-5, PI3-K/Akt, Ras/MapK and NF-kappaB. In this study, we showed the specific requirement of Src family members for the Tel-Abl-mediated cell growth, activation of Stat5, PI3-K/Akt and Ras/MapK while dispensable for Tel-Jak2. Hck was found strongly phosphorylated in Tel-Abl-expressing Ba/F3 cells and sensitive to imatinib mesylate treatment, providing evidence that Hck is a target of Tel-Abl tyrosine kinase activity. Overexpression of a kinase dead form of Hck inhibits the proliferation of Ba/F3 cells expressing Tel-Abl as the phosphorylation of Akt and Erk1/2. These results argue for an important role of Hck in Tel-Abl oncogenic signalling.
