Clinics and Pathology

Disease treatment related acute myeloid leukemia (t-AML) so far
Epidemiology only one case; a female patient aged 39 yrs and treated with antitopoisomerase II for Hodgkin disease


Cytogenetics Morphological showed also a t(17;21)(q11;q22) with AML1 rearrangement

Genes involved and Proteins

Note the gene involved in 12q13 is unknown
Gene NameNUP98 (nucleoporin 98 kDa)
Location 11p15.4
Dna / Rna alternate splicings
Protein contains repeated motifs and a RNA binding motif; nucleoporin: role in nucleo-cytoplasmic transport

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Hybrid gene
Description 5 prime NUP98 - 3 prime unknown
Fusion Protein
Description fuses the N-term domains of NUP98 to an undetermined sequence

To be noted

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