ABL1 is a tyrosine kinase. Deletion of the kinase's inhibitory SH3 domain converts it into an oncogene. A fusion protein caused by a gene translocation, t(9;22), that generates a BCR-ABL fusion is present in many cases of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). The clinically approved drug imatinib, was the first kinase inhibitor to target ABL1 activity to treat CML.
