Expression of a CALM-AF10 fusion gene leads to Hoxa cluster overexpression and acute leukemia in transgenic mice.


To assess the role of the CALM-AF10 fusion gene in leukemic transformation in vivo, we generated transgenic mice that expressed a CALM-AF10 fusion gene. Depending on the transgenic line, at least 40% to 50% of the F(1) generation mice developed acute leukemia at a median age of 12 months. Leukemic mice typically had enlarged spleens, invasion of parenchymal… (More)
