T-cell leukemia 1
Probes: TCL1 (14q32.1)
Disease(s): mature T-cell leukemia, T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (T-PLL), adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL)
This breakapart probe covers breakpoint regions in the TCL1 (T-cell leukemia) gene cluster on chromosome 14q32 which encompasses TCL1A, TCL1B, and other genes. TCL1 translocations and inversions occur in mature T-cell leukemias including T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (T-PLL) and adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL). These rearrangements cause gene overexpression due to juxtaposition with TCR-alpha or TCR-beta regulatory elements and contribute to oncogenesis.
Bone Marrow Aspirate: 1-2 mL sodium heparin tube. EDTA tube is acceptable. Peripheral Blood: 2-5 mL sodium heparin tube. EDTA tube is acceptable. Fresh, Unfixed Tissue: Tissue in RPMI.
