The t(14;18)(q32;21) chromosomal translocation characteristic of follicular lymphomas is the most common cytogenetic abnormality known to be associated with any specific type of hematolymphoid malignancy. A fragment of DNA containing the crossover point between chromosomes 14 and 18 was cloned from the tumor cells of a patient with a follicular lymphoma carrying this translocation. Nucleotide sequence analysis of the breakpoint DNA revealed that the break in chromosome 14 occurred in joining… CONTINUE READING
