Clinics and Pathology

Disease de novo and treatment related acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS); acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at times
Phenotype / cell stem origin various subtypes of AML may be found, M4 in particular, but also M1, M2, M5
Epidemiology at least 24 cases described; often found in children and young adults
Prognosis poor

Genes involved and Proteins

Gene NameKMT2A (myeloid/lymphoid or mixed lineage leukemia)
Location 11q23.3
Protein contains two DNA binding motifs (a AT hook, and Zinc fingers), a DNA methyl transferase motif, a bromodomain; transcriptional regulatory factor; nuclear localisation
Gene NameSEPT9 (MLL septin-like fusion)
Location 17q25.2
Protein protein which belongs to the septin family

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Hybrid gene
Description 5' MLL - 3' MSF; fusion at MLL exon 5; the reciprocal MSF-MLL is also transcribed, but out of frame
Fusion Protein
Description NH2 - AT hook and DNA methyltransferase from MLL fused to most of MSF in COOH
