Polyclonal rearrangements of the T-cell receptor beta-chain in fatal angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy.

Abstract

Genomic rearrangement of germline T-cell antigen receptor (TcR) and immunoglobulin (Ig) genes was studied by Southern blot analysis in seven patients with angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy (AILD). In three cases clinically suspected of transformation into malignant lymphoma, hybridization with the TcR beta probe showed markedly dimished intensity in the 11… (More)
