Atlas_Id 1508
  Complex translocation t(3;11)(q29q13;p15)del(3)(q29). A: Red arrow indicates der(3); green arrow indicates der(11). The chromosomes displaying only red color or green color (yellow arrows) are normal chromosomes 11 and 3, respectively. Insert: Representative partial karyotype showing t(3;11).

Clinics and Pathology

Disease Bi-phenotypic acute T-lymphoid/myeloid leukemia
Phenotype / cell stem origin Only one case available; BM showed 82.5% blast cells mostly with myeloid features. Immunophenotype: CD34+ cells count 35.6%, CD13+ 25.9%, CD33+ 85.4%, MPO+ 20.6% and CD3+ 65.9%, CD7+ 96.5%.
Clinics Only one case available; the patient was a 42-year-old female at diagnosis. After the chemotherapy with vincristine, cytarabine and mitoxantrone, she achieved complete remission (CR), but relapsed after 4 months, and died from intracranial hemorrhage at the 22nd months.
Prognosis The prognostic implication of t(3;11)(q29q13;p15)del(3)(q29) remains to be defined.

Genes involved and Proteins

Gene NameNUP98 (nucleoporin 98 kDa)
Location 11p15.4
Protein Nucleoporin 98, a 98 kDa component of the nuclear pore complex, which mediates nucleo-cytoplasmic transport of protein and RNA.
Gene NameIQCG (IQ motif containing G)
Location 3q29
Protein 443 amino acids.

Result of the chromosomal anomaly

Hybrid gene
Description 5' NUP98 - 3' IQCG; Molecular analysis showed that exon 13 of NUP98 is fused in-frame to exon 10 of IQCG.
Fusion Protein
Description It fuses the GLFG repeat domains of NUP98 to one coiled-coil domain and IQ motif of IQCG.
Expression Localisation Nuclear localization.
