Novel mutation and RNA splice variant of fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 in multiple myeloma patients at diagnosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The karyotypically silent t(4;14)(p16.3;q32) translocation can be found in approximately 15-20% of multiple myeloma (MM) patients and results in the ectopic expression of fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) from der4. Point mutations in specific FGFR3 domains can be found in the translocated allele, and have been recently… (More)
