AML1, a gene on chromosome 21 encoding a transcription factor, is disrupted in the (8;21)(q22;q22) and (3;21)(q26;q22) chromosomal translocations associated with myelogenous leukemias; as a result, chimeric proteins AML1/ETO(MTG8) and AML1/Evi-1 are generated, respectively. To clarify the roles of AML1/ETO(MTG8) and AML1/Evi-1 in leukemogenesis, we investigated subcellular localization of these chimeric proteins by immunofluorescence labeling and subcellular fractionation of COS-7 cells that… CONTINUE READING
