The CDKN2 gene located on chromosome 9p21 encodes the cyclin-dependent kinase-4 inhibitor p16. This gene is a putative tumor-suppressor gene because of its frequent alterations in many kinds of tumor cell lines. We analyzed the CDKN2 gene to evaluate its alterations in 52 primary specimens of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) or chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) of B-cell origin by Southern blot analysis, polymerase chain reaction-mediated single-strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) analysis… CONTINUE READING
