Abstract

Tumor-associated chromosome translocations usually lead to the formation of two reciprocal fusion genes: one thought to be involved in the transformation process, the other the mechanical consequence of the translocation event. In the case of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) blasts, the 15;17 chromosome translocation generates the putatively transforming PML/RARa fusion gene and its reciprocal RARa/PML. We report APL cases with submicroscopic 15;17 recombinations leading to the formation of nonreciprocal PML/RARa or RARa/PML fusion genes. Therefore, each of the two reciprocal translocation products may be independently formed and selected by the leukemic phenotype, implying that both are involved in tumorigenesis.
