Translocation joins c-myc and immunoglobulin γ1 genes in a Burkitt lymphoma revealing a third exon in the c-myc oncogene


Recombinant DNA clones have been used to directly demonstrate that the Burkitt lymphoma cell line Raji, t(8;14) (q24;q32), has a rearranged copy of the c-myc gene adjacent to the γ1 constant region gene of the human immunoglobulin heavy-chain locus ; the genes are arranged in the opposite direction for transcription. At least one further 5′ exon has been… (More)
