Acute Mylenoid Leukemia, a blood and bone marrow cancer is characterized by abnormal proliferation of white blood cells. Genes regulating heamatopoiesis can alter susceptibility to Leukemia. FMS like-tyrosine kinase-3 (FLT3) plays a key role in cell proliferation and differentiation. A three dimensional model of FLT3 was generated using 1RJB (Chain A: Crystal structure of Juxta membrane domain of FLT3), as a template with Modeller7v7. With the aid of molecular mechanics and dynamic methods a model was generated checked by Procheck and 3D graph. After energy minimization, the 3D structure of FLT3 was compared with a template, and 21 genes coding for FLT3 and their locus regions were identified. Multiple alignment and phylogenetic analysis showed that FLT3 family proteins had 4 branches. Functional mutations within FLT3 domain region were identified.
