Chromosomal translocations juxtaposing the MYC protooncogene with regulatory sequences of immunoglobulin (Ig) H chain or kappa (Ig kappa) or lambda (Ig lambda) L chain genes and effecting deregulated expression of MYC are the hallmarks of human Burkitt lymphoma (BL). Here we report that lymphomas with striking similarities to BL develop in mice bearing a(More)
A solitary histone H3 gene encoding a novel H3 protein sequence has been isolated. This H3 gene maps to chromosome 1 (1g42), whereas we have shown previously that the majority of the human histone genes form a large cluster on chromosome 6 (6p21.3). In addition, a small cluster has been described at 1q21. The clustered histone genes are expressed during the(More)
Rearrangement of chromosomal bands 1q21-23 is one of the most frequent chromosomal aberrations observed in hematological malignancy. The genes affected by these rearrangements remain poorly characterized. Typically, 1q21-23 rearrangements arise during tumor evolution and accompany disease-specific chromosomal rearrangements such as t(14;18) (BCL2) and(More)
Overlapping genomic clones of the human α2-macroglobulin (α2M) gene were isolated from a cosmid library and were used to map 80 kb of the chromosomal region of this gene. Fragments carrying the two exons encoding the bait region and the exon encoding the thiolester site were partially sequenced and PCR primers were designed for the amplification of both(More)
The variant translocation t(8;22) in Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) cells joins band q24 of chromosome 8 distal to the proto-oncogene MYC to the immunoglobulin lambda locus. The distribution of breakpoints on chromosome 8 of 11 cell lines with t(8;22) has been investigated by in situ fluorescence hybridization and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. We show that(More)
In Burkitt's lymphoma cells the proto-oncogene c-myc is constantly juxtaposed through chromosomal translocation to one of the immunoglobulin loci on chromosomes 14, 2 or 22. In the majority of cases the chromosomal breakpoint is localized 3' or 5' of the gene leaving the physiological c-myc transcription unit intact. As a consequence of the translocation(More)
In Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) cells the proto-oncogene c-myc is juxtaposed to one of the immunoglobulin (Ig) loci on chromosomes 2, 14, or 22. The c-myc gene becomes transcriptionally activated as a consequence of the chromosomal translocation and shows preferential usage of promoter P1 over P2, a phenomenon referred to as promoter shift. In order to define(More)
