GSK3beta mRNA is subject to aberrant splicing in stem cells in chronic myeloid leukemia. Missplicing leads to in-frame deletion of exons 8 and 9 which encode the FRAT and AXIN binding domains of the protein (Jamieson et al, 2008; Abrahamsson et al, 2009). Cells expressing the mutant GSK3beta have elevated levels of nuclear beta-catenin and high levels of TCF-dependent reporter activity (Jamieson et al, 2008; Abrahamsson et al, 2009). Although it is possible that the defect in the ability of mutant GSK3beta to promote beta-catenin degradation arises from an inability to bind to AXIN and form a functional degradation complex, this has not been formally demonstrated.
