Analysis of a growing number of chromosomal translocations in human tumors have shown that they frequently result in gene fusions encoding chimeric proteins. We have characterized the recurrent t(12;21)(p12;q22) translocation present in human B-lineage acute leukemias. This translocation fused two genes, tel and AML1, that have previously been described in(More)
The constitutive androstane receptor (CAR, NR1I3) transcriptionally activates cytochrome P450 2B6, 2C9, and 3A4 when activated by xenobiotics, such as phenobarbital. Information on the human CAR promoter was obtained by searching the NCBI human genome database. A contig (NT026945) corresponding to a fragment of chromosome 1q21 was found to contain the(More)
