Description 37 exons, spanning over 100 kb
Transcription in a centromeric to telomeric direction; 13 and 15 kb; coding sequence: 11.9 kb


Description 3969 amino acids; 431 KDa; contains from N-term to C-term 3 AT hooks homologous to high mobility group proteins HMGA1 and HMGA2, binding to the minor grove of DNA; 2 speckled nuclear localisation signals; 2 repression domains RD1 and RD2: RD1 or CXXC: cystein methyl transferase, binds CpG rich DNA, has a transcriptional repression activity; RD2 recruits histone desacetylases HDAC1 and 2; 3 plant homeodomains (cystein rich zinc finger domains, with homodimerization properties), 1 bromodomain (may bind acetylated histones), and 1 plant homeodomain; these domains may be involved in protein-protein interaction; a FYRN and a FRYC domain; a transactivation domain which binds CBP ; may acetylates H3 and H4 in the HOX area; a SET domain: methyltransferase; methyltates H3, including histones in the HOX area for allowing chromatin to be open to transcription. MLL is cleaved by taspase 1 into 2 proteins before entering the nucleus: a p300/320 N-term protein called MLL-N, and a p180 C-term protein, called MLL-C. The FYRN and a FRYC domains of native MLL associate MLL-N and MLL-C in a stable complex; they form a multiprotein complex with transcription factor TFIID.
Expression wide; especially in: brain, kidney, thyroid; expressed in Taned B lymphocytes and myeloid cells
Localisation nuclear, in punctate spots
Function transcriptional regulatory factor; MLL may have yin-yang functions through actions of MLL-N and MLL-C (e.g. desacetylation/acetylation); MLL-N acts as a transcriptional repressor; MLL can be associated with more than 30 proteins, including the core components of the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex and the transcription complex TFIID. MLL binds promotors of HOX genes through acetylation and methylation of histones. MLL is a major regulator of hematopoesis and embryonic development, through regulation of HOX genes expression regulation ( HOXA9 in particular).
Homology trithorax (Drosophila), ALR (human), MLL2 (human)


Note MLL is implicated in at least 10 % of acute leukaemias (AL) of various types: acute lymphoblastic leukemias (ALL), acute non lymphocytic leukemias (AML), biphenotypic ALs, treatment related leukemias, infant leukemias; the prognosis is poor

Implicated in

Entity /acute leukaemias --> KMT2A-
Disease typically CD19+ CD10-precursor B-ALL, biphenotypic AL, at times AML (M4/M5); common in infants may be congenital; treatment related leukaemia (secondary to epipodophyllotoxins)
Prognosis median survival < 1yr
Cytogenetics additional chromosome anomalies are found in 1/4 of cases, one of which is the i(7q)
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' MLL-3' AF4; 12kb
Abnormal Protein 240 kDa protein with about 1400 aminoacids from NH2 MLL and 850 from COOH AF4 (variable breakpoints); the reciprocal may or may not be expressed
Entity /AML -->KMT2A-
Disease M5/M4 de novo and therapy related AML, T-cell ALL
Prognosis poor
Entity /AML --> KMT2A /
Disease M5/M4 de novo and therapy related AML
Prognosis the prognosis may not be as poor as in other 11q23 leukaemias in de novo cases; very poor prognosis in secondary AML cases
Cytogenetics may be overlooked; often as a sole anomaly
Hybrid/Mutated Gene variable breakpoints on both genes
Abnormal Protein N-term -- AT hook and DNA methyltransferase from MLL fused to the 192 C-term amino acids from AF9 (as breakpoints are variable, this is only an example)
Entity /AML --> KMT2A /
Disease M4 or M5 AML; ALL at times; therapy related AML
Prognosis poor
Entity /AML --> KMT2A-ELL
Disease mainly M4/M5; treatment related leukemia; all ages
Prognosis very poor
Cytogenetics detected with R banding
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' MLL - 3' ELL
Abnormal Protein AT hook and DNA methyltransferase from MLL fused to most of ELL
Oncogenesis potential transcription factor
Entity /acute leukaemias --> KMT2A-
Disease ALL (CD19+), biphenotypic AL, AML (M4/M5); mainly congenital; treatment-related leukaemia
Prognosis very poor, except in rare T-cell cases
Cytogenetics detected with G banding
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' MLL - 3' ENL
Abnormal Protein AT hook and DNA methyltransferase from MLL fused to, most often, the nearly entire ENL
