Cytogenetic/molecular abnormalities significantly influence the prognosis of patients with acute leukemia. Recently, two genes, p16INK4a and p15INK4b, encoding two cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor proteins of the INK4 family of Mr 15,000 and 16,000, respectively, have been localized to 9p21. Remarkably, the p16INK4a locus has been found to encode a second(More)
Cytogenetic changes are of pivotal prognostic significance in patients with de novo acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). However, in some cases leukemic blasts can harbor gene lesions on a submicroscopic level without evidence of a corresponding abnormality by conventional cytogenetic studies. This can result in failure to recognize chromosomal abnormalities(More)
