B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL)


An apparently identical t(13;19)(q14;p13) has been described in 3 cases of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) (Finn et al., 1998; Merup et al., 1998; Brown et al.,1993).


Only one case to date of ALL with this translocation, a 19-year-old female patient with pre-B-ALL; she achieved complete remission and (CR) was in continuing CR 10 months later, at last follow up (Barber et al., 2007).

Genes Involved and Proteins

The translocation involves TCF3 and an unknown partner.
Gene name
TCF3 (transcription factor 3 (E2A immunoglobulin enhancer binding factors E12/E47))
Protein description
The E2A gene encodes two distinct basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors, E12 (ITF1) and E47 (TCF3) through alternative splicing. It forms homodimers and heterodimers with other basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors. Ubiquitously expressed during development. Role in cell growth, cell commitment, and differentiation. Role in epithelial mesenchymal transition (review in Slattery et al., 2008).
