    The 'promiscuous' E2A gene, at 19p13.3, is fused with two different molecular partners, PBX1 and HLF, following two chromosome translocations recurrent in childhood pre-B ALL. We have identified a novel gene, FB1, by virtue of its fusion with E2A and by a combination of molecular techniques. FB1...

    The chromosomal translocation t(4;11)(q21;q23) is a frequent genetic aberration of the mixed lineage leukemia (MLL) gene, predominantly associated with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in pediatric patients. Previous studies demonstrated that mice transplanted with hematopoietic...

    Chromosomal abnormalities in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) are linked to outcome. In particular, the Ph chromosome/BCR/ABL fusion, MLL gene rearrangements/11q23 abnormalities and nearhaploidy (23-28 chromosomes) are high-risk. The cryptic translocation, t(12;21)(p13;q22)/ETV6/AML1 fusion,...

    Acute leukemias of the t(4;11) (MLL-AF4 fusion gene) type frequently have high white blood counts and extramedullary disease in multiple organs. In the present study we evaluated the hypotheses that this extensive disease is the result of extramedullary survival of leukemia cells due to...

    Chromosomal aberrations associated with schizophrenic disorders may suggest regions in which to focus a search for genes predisposing to schizophrenia by a linkage strategy. As for other genetic illnesses, chromosomal abnormalities may also provide useful tools for subsequent physical mapping,...

    The marriage of cytogenetics and molecular biology has resulted in major advances in our understanding of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia. These technologies reveal a number of clearly recognizable syndromes of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia. This review describes the salient features of several of...

    Darier's disease is a rare autosomal dominantly inherited keratosis. This is an account of one family in which there is co-occurrence of major affective disorder and Darier's disease in five members and absence of both disorders in five members. The pedigree is consistent with genetic linkage...

    We investigated linkage between schizophrenia and the loci DXYS14, DXYS17, and MIC2 within the pseudoautosomal region in 85 families with two or more siblings suffering from schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder. A maximum lod score of 2.44 was reached at MIC2, with a dominant model of...

    Modern therapy for pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is based on the principle of risk stratification. One of the most important laboratory features used to accurately risk stratify patients is the presence of specific chromosomal translocation within the leukemic blasts. In this...
