The TP53 mutation profile in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and the correlation of TP53 mutations with allele status or associated molecular genetics are currently unknown. We performed a large mutation analysis of TP53 at four centers and characterized the pattern of TP53 mutations in CLL. We report on 268 mutations in 254 patients with CLL. Missense(More)
Mutation and/or loss of the TP53 tumour suppressor gene is the single most common genetic abnormality in human cancer. The majority of TP53 mutations lead to stabilization of the protein, so that immunohistochemical staining for p53 can suggest mutation status in many cases. However, various false-positive and false-negative situations mean that simple(More)
Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is typified by translocation t(11;14)(q13;q32) causing upregulation of cyclin D1 and deregulation of cell cycle. The cyclin D1 activation plays a critical role in MCL pathogenesis but additional oncogenic events, such as aberrations of the ARF/MDM2/p53 pathway are also necessary for progression of the disease. We analyzed the p53(More)
Exposure of human leukaemia MOLT-4 cells to ionizing irradiation led to apoptosis, which was detected by flow cytometric analysis and degradation of the nuclear lamina. The multiple signalling pathways triggered by either membrane or DNA damage play a critical role in radiation-induced apoptosis. The response to DNA damage is typically associated with the(More)
In chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), the worst prognosis is associated with TP53 defects with the affected patients being potentially directed to alternative treatment. Therapy administration was shown to drive the selection of new TP53 mutations in CLL. Using ultra-deep next-generation sequencing (NGS), we performed a detailed analysis of TP53 mutations'(More)
Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most frequent lymphoma in adults. There are specific alterations that appear repeatedly in DLBCL cases and play a role in lymphomagenesis or progression of the disease. Some aberrations were used as prognostic markers in the pre-rituximab era. Addition of rituximab to the classical anthracycline-based(More)
To determine the physiological processes in which the transcription factor c-Rel may act, we have examined its pattern of expression in the avian embryo by in situ hybridization. These studies showed that c-rel is expressed ubiquitously at low levels and at high levels in isolated cells undergoing programmed cell death by apoptosis or autophagocytosis. To(More)
PURPOSE There is a distinct connection between TP53 defects and poor prognosis in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). It remains unclear whether patients harboring TP53 mutations represent a homogenous prognostic group. PATIENTS AND METHODS We evaluated the survival of patients with CLL and p53 defects identified at our institution by p53 yeast functional(More)
Deletion of TP53 gene, under routine assessment by fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis, connects with the worst prognosis in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). The presence of isolated TP53 mutation (without deletion) is associated with reduced survival in CLL patients. It is unclear how these abnormalities are selected and what their mutual(More)
