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 Name TAL1
Location 1p32
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 Name TRA
Location 14q11 in the case of a t(1;14)
Gene Name TRB
Location 7q35 in the case of a t(1;7)

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)
