Clinics and Pathology

Disease t(6;14)(p21.1;q32.3) is mainly multiple myeloma / plasma cell leukaemia, but also observed in diffuse large B cell non Hodgkin lymphoma (DLBCL) and marginal zone B cell lymphoma.
Phenotype / cell stem origin mature B-lymphocyte
Epidemiology Approximately 4% of primary MM cases. MGUS? Should be rather frequent in lymphoma but not yet systematically estimated.
Cytology CD138+ dystrophic or not dystrophic plasma cells in MM; CD5+ diffuse large B cell lymphoma and splenic lymphoma with villous lymphocytes in NHL.
Prognosis No prognosis value clearly established.


Cytogenetics Morphological May be not easy to detect.
Cytogenetics Molecular Translocation detected by FISH with CCND3 and IgH probes; der(14) sometimes in multiple copies; der(6) sometimes lost.
Additional anomalies Complex karyotype in most cases.

Genes involved and Proteins

Gene NameCCND3 (cyclin D3)
Location 6p21.1
Note synonym CGD3
Dna / Rna 6,88kb, 5 exons, 5¹ - 3¹ telomeric orientation.
Protein 32,5kDA, 292 amino acids; regulates Rb1 phosphorylation and, hence, cell cycle G1/S transition, as a result of interaction with CDK4 and CDK6 protein kinases.
Gene NameIGH (Immunoglobulin Heavy)
Location 14q32.33

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Hybrid gene
Description 6p21.1 breakpoint centromeric to CCND3; 14q32.3 breakpoint in the switch region; leads to proximity between IGHS sequences and CCND3 on der(14).
Fusion Protein
Note no
Oncogenesis Dysregulation and overexpression of CCND3.

To be noted

Case Report A case of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) with a rare chromosome abnormality: t(1;14;6)(q21;q32;p21), a variant of t(6;14)(p21;q32).
