Clinics and Pathology


B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)

Phenotype stem cell origin

There were 5 cases of ALL (L3-ALLs and CD10+ ALLs in 2 cases each), 11 cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), 7 cases of unclassifiable B-cell lymphoma, one case of follicular lymphoma, and one case of diffuse mixed small and large cell lymphoma (Levine et al., 1989; Nacheva et al., 1993; Dunphy et al., 2003; DAchille et al., 2006; Bertrand et al., 2007; Le Gouill et al., 2007; Christie et al., 2008; Johnson et al., 2009; Subramaniyam et al., 2011).


Twenty five cases are available. There were 12 male and 13 female patients, median age was 63 years (range 42-90 years). In a review of NHLs with a t(14;18)(q32;q21), the incidence of MYC translocations was 5%, and the incidence of t(8;9)(q24;p13) was 1% (Johansson et al., 1995).

Meta-analysis of survival in patients with t(8;9)(q24;p13).


Median survival was 4 months (see figure). However, patients with an ALL died at 1, 1, 1.5, and 1.5 months. Median survival of patients with NHL was 6 months, and 3 out of 19 NHL patients were still alive 5 years after diagnosis (16%).

Genes Involved and Proteins

Breakpoints occurred close to MYC on chromosome 8 and close to: ZBTB5, ZCCHC7, and PAX5 on chromosome 9 (Bertrand et al., 2007; Le Gouill et al., 2007; Johnson et al., 2009).
- ZBTB5 is a POZ domain Krüppel-like zinc finger transcription repressor. ZBTB5 interacted with co-repressor-histone deacetylase complexes such as BCOR, NCOR1, and NCOR2 (SMRT), resulting in deacetylation of histones Ac-H3 and Ac-H4, and transcriptional repression of CDKN1A (p21) (Koh et al., 2009).
- ZCCHC7 is the equivalent of the yeast AIR1. In yeast, a number of unwanted RNA transcripts are first recognized by the nuclear exosome cofactor Trf4/5p-Air1/2p-Mtr4p polyadenylation (TRAMP) complex before subsequent nuclear-exosome-mediated degradation. TRAMP facilitates pre-mRNA splicing (Kong et al., 2013).
- PAX5 is a lineage-specific transcription factor; recognizes the concensus recognition sequence GNCCANTGAAGCGTGAC, where N is any nucleotide. Involved in B-cell differentiation. Entry of common lymphoid progenitors into the B cell lineage depends on E2A, EBF1, and PAX5; activates B-cell specific genes and represses genes involved in other lineage commitments. Activates the surface cell receptor CD19 and represses FLT3. PAX5 physically interacts with the RAG1/RAG2 complex, and removes the inhibitory signal of the lysine-9-methylated histone H3, and induces V-to-DJ rearrangements. Genes repressed by PAX5 expression in early B cells are restored in their function in mature B cells and plasma cells, and PAX5 repressed (Fuxa et al., 2004; Johnson et al., 2004; Zhang et al., 2006; Cobaleda et al., 2007).
