MLL/MLLT3 Translocation, Dual Fusion

RU-LPH 083 (100μl)
RU-LPH 083-S (50μl)

Translocations involving chromosome 11q23 frequently occur in both acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). In most cases, the MLL gene is involved but translocation partners are extremely variable, with 79 direct translocation partners having been molecularly characterised so far.

The most common MLL rearrangement in both AML and ALL involves fusion of the MLL and AFF1 (AF4) genes via a t(4;11)(q21;q23) translocation. Three of the other more common translocations involve the MLLT3 (AF9) gene on chromosome 9, the MLLT1 (ENL) gene on chromosome 19 or the MLLT4 (AF6) gene on chromosome 6.

• MLL/MLLT3(AF9) - t(9;11)(p22;q23)

• MLL/MLLT1(ENL) - t(11;19)(q23;p13.3)

• MLL/MLLT4(AF6) - t(6;11)(q27;q23)

We now have a range of Research Use Only (RUO) Translocation, Dual Fusion probes to allow specific detection of these MLL rearrangements.
