Hemizygous p16(INK4A) deletion in pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia predicts independent risk of relapse.

Abstract

The genes at the INK4A/ARF locus at 9p21 are frequently involved in human cancer. Virtually all p16(INK4A) exon 2 (henceforth called p16) inactivation in pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) occurs by gene deletion. The results of this study illustrate that real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction is capable of detecting gene deletion in… (More)
