Clinics and Pathology

Phenotype stem cell origin

B-cell lymphoma.


Rare translocation first described in a B-cell lymphoma cell line by Tedoldi et al. 2006.






In the study by Tedoldi et al., Jaw1/LRMP was found in three-quarters (24/32) of the diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) cases classified phenotypically as being of germinal centre type and also expressed in almost half (13/28) of the non-germinal centre cases.


Cytogenetics morphological

The conventional karyotype analysis revealed 47,X,add(X)(p22), del(1)(p36.3), t(8;12)(q24;p12.1),+der(12)t(8;12), t(14;18)(q32;q21) [7]/46, XX [1].

Cytogenetics molecular

A. Fosmid dual color break apart probes spanning the LRMP gene on 12p12 shows a similar break apart pattern as commercial MYC probe.
B. Molecular fusion of the fosmid probes spanning the LRMP gene observed with MYC on 8q24.
C. FISH analysis for mapping translocation breakpoints on MYC revealed a mono allelic deletion of the BAC clone RP11-125A17 (PVT1 locus) with 1Y1R pattern in 100% of metaphase and interphase cells analyzed.

A. FISH image depicts fosmid dual color break apart probe created by the combination of G248P87899B1 (WI2-3266N3) (labeled in green) and G248P89329G2 (WI2-1668D2) (labeled in red) from 12p12.1 shows a similar break apart signal pattern as MYC dual color breakapart probe (shown above) in a metaphase and interphase cells. B. FISH image depicts fusion of fosmid probes G248P87899B1/G248P89329G2 (labeled in red) spanning the LRMP gene on 12p12.1 with "in house" MYC probe (RP11-440N18/RP11-125A17) (labeled in green) on 8q24. C. FISH analysis using "in-house" BAC probes for mapping breakpoints on MYC [RP11-440N18 (Sp. R.) and RP11-125A17 (Sp.G.)] revealed mono allelic deletion of RP11-125A17 (Sp. G.).


G248P87899B1 (WI2-3266N3) (labeled in green) and G248P89329G2 (WI2-1668D2) (labeled in red) for LRMP gene on chromosomal locus 12p12.1 and RP11-440N18 and RP11-125A17 for MYC gene on 8q24. Probes provided by Dr Wan Lam, BC Cancer Agency.

Fusion gene

LRMP/MYC LRMP (12p12.1) MYC (8q24.21) M t(8;12)(q24;p12)


This is a novel translocation in a single case involving chromosomal band 12p12 and MYC on 8q24.
Atlas Image
The G-banding karyotype analysis of this case revealed t(8;12)(q24;?p11),+der(12)t(8;12) in addition to the t(14;18)(q32;q24). Further, metaphase FISH analysis (Left) using the commercial MYC dual color break apart probe revealed a fused yellow signal on chromosome 8 indicating a normal copy, a red signal on derivative 8 and two derivative 12 chromosomes carrying the telomeric portion of MYC labeled in Spectrum Green. The Interphase cells (Right) also revealed a 1F1R2G pattern in 100% of the cells that were scored.
