In acute myeloid leukemia (AML) mutations in the juxtamembrane and tyrosine kinase 1 domain (exons 13-15) of the FLT3 gene (FLT3-ITD/LM) are heterogeneous with respect to mutation load, size, and localization. We characterized length and structure of these mutations by fragment analysis and sequencing in 689 AML which were identified among 3,365 (20.5%) newly diagnosed AML (1,803 males, 1,562 females; 15.8-91.8 years). Mutations were heterogeneous in length (median: 63, range: 3-1,236… CONTINUE READING
