Clinics and Pathology

Disease T- cell ALL
Epidemiology rare findings; t(1;14) is found in approximately 3% of T-ALL; t(1;7) is rarer (status 3: < 5 cases); however, TAL1 rearrangements, all together (being mostly submicroscopic deletions without visible 1p32 involvement), occurs in 15-25% of T-ALL; male predominance (as is classical in T-cell ALL)
Clinics organomegaly; high WBC (median 200X 109/l)


Additional anomalies t(1;14) is found solely in about half cases, and accompanied by del(6q) in nearly half cases as well

Genes involved and Proteins

Gene NameTAL1 (T-cell acute leukemia 1)
Location 1p33
Dna / Rna complex alternate splicing
Protein contains a basic Helix-Loop-Helix (DNA binding) domain; forms heterodimers; transcription factor; role in haematopoietic cell differentiation
Gene NameTRA (T cell Receptor Alpha)
Location 14q11.2
Gene NameTRB (T cell Receptor Beta)
Location 7q34

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Fusion Protein
Description in most cases (breakpoints between exons 2B and 3 of TAL1), 3' TAL1 joins variable and diversity segments of TCR on der(14); in the few cases where the breakpoint is within exon 6 of TAL1 or 3' from it, constant segments of TCR join TAL1 on der(1)
