Clinics and Pathology


a case of therapy related leukemia, 2.5 yrs after the treatment of a non Hodgkin lymphoma

Phenotype stem cell origin

acute myeloid leukemia


unknown (relapse at 20 mths) but likely to be similar to the prognosis associated with other 11q23 therapy related leukemia

Genes Involved and Proteins

Gene name
KMT2A (myeloid/lymphoid or mixed lineage leukemia)
Dna rna description
13-15 kb mRNA
Protein description
431 kDa; contains two DNA binding motifs (a AT hook, and Zinc fingers), a DNA methyl transferase motif, a bromodomain; transcriptional regulatory factor; nuclear localisation
Gene name
EP300 (E1A binding protein p300)
Dna rna description
9 kb mRNA
Protein description
264 kDa; widely expressed; possesses a nuclear localization signal, a poly-serine, a bromodomain, a poly-glu, a binding region for E1A adenovirus, and a poly-gln;. interact with transcriptional activators as well as repressors; involved (with CBP) in growth, differentiation , and apoptosis

Result of the Chromosomal Anomaly


chimeric mRNAs from both derivative chromosomes are found


the MLL/p300 fusion transcript encodes a protein of about 3000 amino acids, the N-term half comprising the AT hook and DNA methyltransferase (exons 1 to 9) from MLL and the C-term half comprising the acetyltransferase domain and the TFIIB-binding domain of p300, excluding the nuclear localisation signal and the bromodomain
