Clinics and Pathology

Disease T-cell acute lymphoid leukemia (T-ALL)
Epidemiology One case to date, a 9-year-old boy.
Evolution Remission was obtained and the patient remains in complete remission 28 months after diagnosis.


Cytogenetics Morphological The translocation was accompanied with a del(12p).

Genes involved and Proteins

Gene NameNUP98 (nucleoporin 98 kDa)
Location 11p15.4
Protein Nucleoporin: associated with the nuclear pore complex. Role in nucleocytoplasmic transport processes.
Gene NameSETBP1 (SET binding protein 1)
Location 18q12.3
Protein Contains 3 DNA binding domains (A.T hooks). SETBP1 protects SET from protease cleavage. SETBP1 forms a complex with SET and PP2A (protein phosphatase 2A). SETBP1 impairs PP2A activity via SET and promotes proliferation of acute myeloid leukemia cells (Cristóbal et al., 2010).
Germinal mutations In Schinzel-Giedion midface retraction syndrome.

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Hybrid gene
Description 5' NUP98 - 3' SETBP1
Transcript Exon 12 of NUP98 (nucleotide (nt) 1552) fused in-frame with exon 5 of SETBP1 (nt 4015).

To be noted
