Gene: LOC107966125 (BCR-ABL p225 breakpoint cluster region) Homo sapiens
Symbol: LOC107966125
Name: BCR-ABL p225 breakpoint cluster region
RGD ID: 38672700
Description: This region is known to undergo mitotic DNA recombination with another region, the ABL breakpoint region, located on the q arm of chromosome 9. Recombination between these two regions results in a translocation known as the t(9;22)(q34;q11) rearrangement, and can produce gene fusions involving the BCR, RhoGEF and GTPase activating protein (BCR) gene and the ABL proto-oncogene 1, non-receptor tyrosine kinase (ABL1) genes. Several different BCR-ABL gene fusions have been observed, resulting from recombination with different regions within BCR. Recombination between the region described here and the ABL breakpoint region results in a chimeric BCR-ABL transcript, known as the e18a2 transcript, and produces a 225-kDa chimeric protein known as p225. The BCR-ABL oncogene produced by this translocation event has been implicated in hematological malignancies, but is observed much less frequently than that of other BCR rearrangements, such as those producing the p210 and p190 chimeric BCR-ABL proteins. A mechanism to explain this recombination event has yet to be determined, but it has been noted that BCR and ABL tend to be in close physical proximity during cell division in hematopoietic stem cells. This close proximity could provide opportunities for aberrant recombination in the event of double strand break formation. [provided by RefSeq, May 2016]
