Malignant melanoma is a cancer that arises from melanocyte cells in a complex but well-studied process, and which can only be successfully treated prior to metastasis as it is highly resistant to conventional therapies. A number of recent reports have indicated that members of the HOX family of homeodomain-containing transcription factors are deregulated in(More)
The 8p11 myeloproliferative syndrome is a rare, aggressive condition associated with reciprocal translocations of chromosome band 8p11, most commonly the t(8;13)(p11;q12). To identify the genes involved in this translocation, we used fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis to show that the chromosome 8 breakpoints fell within YAC 899e2 and that(More)
Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is characterized by the PML-RARA fusion gene. To identify genetic changes that cooperate with PML-RARA, we performed spectral karyotyping analysis of myeloid leukemias from transgenic PML-RARA mice and from mice coexpressing PML-RARA and BCL2, IL3, activated IL3R, or activated FLT3. A cooperating mutation that enhanced(More)
