A deletion of the long arm of chromosome 20 [del(20q)] is a recurring abnormality in a wide spectrum of myeloid disorders. Loss of genetic material from 20q may confer a proliferative advantage to myeloid cells, possibly through loss of function of a tumor suppressor gene. Previously, we analyzed leukemia cells from 19 patients with a del(20q) by… CONTINUE READING
