Clinics and Pathology

Disease M5 acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
Clinics Poorly known: one case, a 4-months old girl with 46,XX,t(3;11)(q12~13;q23).

Genes involved and Proteins

Gene NameKMT2A (myeloid/lymphoid or mixed lineage leukemia)
Location 11q23.3
Dna / Rna 21 exons, spanning about 100 kb; 13-17 kb mRNA.
Protein 431 kDa; contains two DNA binding motifs (an AT hook and Zinc fingers), a DNA methyl transferase motif, a bromodomain; transcriptional regulatory factor; nuclear localisation.
Gene NameKIAA1524
Location 3q13.13
Note Alias: CIP2A.
Dna / Rna 21 exons, spanning about 40 kb; 3-4 kb mRNA.
Protein 905 amino acids containing protein with transmembrane domain and coiled coil domain; inhibits MYC directed inhibitory function of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A).

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Hybrid gene
  A. DNA sequence as derived from a Long distance inverse-PCR experiment. Shown in black is the sequence from MLL intron 9, exon 10 (Bold) and intron 10 respectively, in blue two inserted nucleotides, in red the sequence from KIAA1524 intron 16, exon 17 (Bold) and intron 17 respectively. (figure adapted from reference). B. Transcript (figure adapted from reference).
Description In the described patient MLL exon 1-10 are fused to KIAA1524 exon 17-21 due to translocation between MLL intron 10 and KIAA1524 intron 16.
Transcript See figure above.
Detection RT-PCR according to reference.
Fusion Protein
  MLL-KIAA1524 fusion protein is shown and its wildtype predecessors. AT: AT-hook, SNL1 and SNL2: subnuclear localization sites, MT: methyltransferase, PHD1-3 and PHD4: plant homology domains, BD: binding domain, FYRC and FYRN: domains involved in heterodimerisation, TASPASE1: taspase 1 cleavage sites, TAD: transcriptional activation domain, SET: Su(var)3-9, enchancer-of-zeste trithorax domain, CC: coiled coil domain, TMD: transmembrane domain, aa: amino acids. (figure adapted from reference).
Description From the fusion in the described patient a fusion protein of 1673 amino acids is expected.
Expression Localisation Unknown.
