Genes involved and Proteins

Gene NameKMT2A (myeloid/lymphoid or mixed lineage leukemia)
Location 11q23.3
Dna / Rna 36 exons, spans over 100kb, ORF 12kb.
Protein 3969 amino acids; 431 kDa; contains two DNA binding motifs (a AT hook and a DNA methyltransferase homology motif), trithorax homology domains, zinc finger domains with features of PHD fingers and the C-terminal SET domain.
Gene NameSARNP (cytokine induced protein 29 kDa)
Location 12q13.2
Protein 210 amino acids, 29 kDa;contains from N term to C term a SAP domain and 2 nuclear localization domains

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Hybrid gene
Description 5' MLL - 3' CIP29 including the 9 first exons of MLL, and nearly the entire CIP29
Fusion Protein
Description The fusion protein includes from N term to C term the AT hooks and the methyltransferase domain of MLL and the SAP domain and the C term nuclear localization domains of CIP29.

To be noted
