What is the JAK2 Mutation?

The video and the infographic below demonstrate the effect of the Janus-kinase 2 (JAK2) V617F mutation in some individuals with Essential Thrombocythemia (ET). This mutation leads to constitutive activation of JAK-STAT signaling pathway which controls the transcription of many genes responsible for survival, proliferation and migration.
