Phosphorylation of SRSF1 at Tyr-19 promotes cell proliferation in pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Serine/arginine-rich splicing factor 1 (SRSF1) has been linked to various human cancers including pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Our previous study has shown that SRSF1 potentially contributes to leukemogenesis, however its underlying mechanism remains unclear. In this study, leukemic cells were isolated from pediatric ALL bone marrow samples, followed by immune-precipitation assays...
