Cloning of immunoglobulin chromosomal translocations by long-distance inverse polymerase chain reaction.

Many subtypes of B-cell malignancy are characterized by chromosomal translocations that target the immunoglobulin loci. Molecular cloning of such translocations continues to allow the identification of genes whose deregulated expression plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of B-cell malignancy. The clustering of breakpoints within the immunoglobulin… CONTINUE READING
