Clinics and Pathology

Disease Acute myeloid leukemia (AML), M2-AML type; this leukemia case is likely to be treatment related (see below)
Epidemiology only 1 case to date, a 55yr old male patient who has had a non Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) with t(14;18)(q32;q21) 3 yrs before onset of the AML.
Evolution Complete remission of the AML was achieved, but the NHL relapsed and an advanced gastric carcinoma was found and the patient died shortly afterwards.

Genes involved and Proteins

Note This translocation appears to be closely related to other translocations involving NUP98 and an homeodomain bearing protein, i.e. the t(2;11)(q31;p15),.with HOXD13 or with HOXD11 involvement, the t(7;11)(p15;p15),.with HOXA9 or with HOXA13 involvement, the t(9;11)(q34;p15), with PRRX2 involvement, and the t(11;12)(p15;q13) ID: n°identif> with HOXC11 or with involvement
Gene NamePRRX1 (paired related homeobox 1)
Location 1q24.2
Protein Protein with a homeodomain

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Hybrid gene
Description In frame fusion of NUP98 to PRRX1 exon 2; no reciprocal fusion transcript
Fusion Protein
Description The chimeric protein contains the N-term half of NUP98, including the docking site to the homeodomain of PRRX1.
Oncogenesis The PRRX1 homeodomain may be upregulated

To be noted

Additional cases are needed to delineate the epidemiology of this rare entity:
