DNA/RNA

Description The gene spans over 90kb on plus strand; 8 exons; 3 polyadenylation signals in the 3' untranslated region of exon 8

Protein

Description Various transcripts: involving exons 1, 6, and 8 (145 amino acids) or 1, and 8 (54 amino acids) in the neurectoderm; transcripts involving exons 1,5,6,8 or 1,4,5,6,8, or 1,5,6,7,8, or 1,2,6,8, or 1,2,5,6,8 or 1,2,3,6,8 in leukemic cells; altogether, 8 different transcripts of BAALC, giving rise to 5 different proteins
Expression Transcripts involving exons 1, 6, and 8, or 1, and 8 are found in neurectoderm tissues; BAALC is also expressed in normal early progenitor cells (CD34+) of the hematopoietic tissues: both uncommitted and lineage-committed progenitor cells (lymphoid T- and B-cell progenitors, myeloid and erytroid progenitors); down regulation occurs with cell differentiation; various transcripts are found in leukemic blasts (see above and below); also found expressed in the mesoderm and the muscle in the mouse
Localisation Cytoplasmic; found adjacent to the cell membrane in the mouse; may be localized to lipid rafts and may play a synaptic role in the rat brain
Homology No homology with other proteins; the ortholog lacks in lower vertebrates.

Note
  
Entity 1/4 of acute non lymphocytic leukemia (AML) cases and 2/3 of acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) case have been found to exhibit high BAALC expression ; no expression in chronic leukemias (e.g. chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)); expression in blast crisis of CML.
Disease AML cases: M0 AML, M1, M2 and M4eo cases, rarely M4 or M5 cases; no M3 case so far; association with the more immature blasts; no correlation with age, sex, haemoglobin level or platelets count, or FLT3 phenotype; BAALC expression is associated with a higher WBC count
Prognosis Poor prognosis is associated with BAALC overexpression in AML cases: at 3 yrs, only 35-40% of patients with high BAALC expression were alive; independant risk factor; in particular, BAALC overexpression remains a poor prognostic factor in the absence of FLT3 internal tandem duplication.
Cytogenetics Patients present with normal karyotypes, with , or with various anomalies.
  
  
Entity Glioblastoma
Note BAALC in also upregulated in normal astrocytes
