Immortalization and leukemic transformation of a myelomonocytic precursor by retrovirally transduced HRX-ENL.

A subset of chromosomal translocations in acute leukemias results in the fusion of the trithorax-related protein HRX with a variety of heterologous proteins. In particular, leukemias with the t(11;19)(q23;p13.3) translocation express HRX-ENL fusion proteins and display features which suggest the malignant transformation of myeloid and/or lymphoid progenitor… CONTINUE READING
