Chromosome rearrangements at 12q13 in two cases of chondrosarcomas.


We analyzed the karyotypes of two moderately differentiated (grade 2) chondrosarcomas. Case 1 had a reciprocal translocation between chromosomes 6 and 12, t(6;12)(q25;q13) in most of the cells analyzed, as well as trisomies of chromosomes 7, 8, 11, 17, 19, and 21 and tetrasomy of chromosome 19. A reciprocal translocation involving chromosomes 12 and 19, t… (More)
