Clinics and Pathology


AML mostly; occasionally: CML-like cases without t(9;22), or CMLin blast crisis (with t(9;22))

Phenotype stem cell origin

M2 or M4 AML mainly; involving maturingleukemic cells in AML cases, might affect trilineage progenitors inCML-like cases


most cases have been found in Japan; balanced sex ratio


auer rods; low alkaline phosphatase scores; CML likeblood features


CR in most cases; but patients tend to relapse; mean survival: 15mths

Genes Involved and Proteins

Gene name
HOXA9 (homeobox A9)
Protein description
encodes a class I homeodomain protein potentiallycontains repeated motifs and a RNA binding motif;
Gene name
NUP98 (nucleoporin 98 kDa)
Dna rna description
alternate splicings
Protein description
nucleoporin: role in nucleo-cytoplasmic transport

Result of the Chromosomal Anomaly


5 NUP98 - 3 HOXA9fuses the N-term GLFG repeat domains of NUP98 to the HOXA9 3homeobox


may promote leukaemogenesis through inhibition ofHOXA9-mediated terminaldifferentiation and/or aberrant nucleocytoplasmic transport
