Description full length cDNA: 5,016 bp; a single open reading frame of 4,137 bp; alternative spliced cDNA variant
Transcription main transcripts: 5.0 and 7.5 kb


Description 1 379 amino acids; hydrophobic protein containing several motifs: a N-terminal cystein-rich region containing ten repeats with the consensus sequence C-X2-C-X18-24-F/Y-C-X3-C, which correspond to a novel zinc finger motifs, a highly hydrophobic proline-rich stretch, and a bipartite nuclear localization signal
Expression wide
Localisation cell nucleus and nucleolus; within the nucleolus, colocalizes with UBF (Upstream Binding Factor)
Function may be involved in the regulation of rRNA transcription
Homology FIM is related to DXS6673E, a gene which may be related with mental retardation

Implicated in

Entity /AML-NHL --> 5' ZMYM2 - 3' FGFR1 ; stem-cell myeloproliferative disorder associated with the 8p12 chromosomal translocations; fused to the catalytic domain of FGFR1
Disease stem-cell myeloproliferative disorder characterized by myeloid hyperplasia, T -cell lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma and peripheral blood eosinophilia, and it generally progresses to acute myeloid leukemia; specific to the 8p12 chromosomal region
Prognosis very poor (median survival: 12 mths)
Cytogenetics usually, t(8;13)(p12;q12) occurs as a single anomaly; duplication of the der(13) was found during disease progression, suggesting that the crucial event might lie on this derivative chromosome; additional abnormalities:+8, +21
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' FIM - 3' FGFR1; localisation: der(13)
DNA Diagram
Abnormal Protein aberrant tyrosine kinase composed of the N-term two-thirds of FIM (retaining the 10 putative zinc finger motifs), and the FGFR1 intracellular region minus the major part of the juxtamembrane domain
Oncogenesis constitutive kinase activity of FGFR1 through constitutive activation of FGFR1 signal transduction pathways via constitutive dimerization capability mediated by the FIM N-term zinc finger sequences
