Fusion Proteins, bcr-abl
Translation products of a fusion gene derived from CHROMOSOMAL TRANSLOCATION of C-ABL GENES to the genetic locus of the breakpoint cluster region gene on chromosome 22. The p210(bcr-abl) fusion protein is found in patients with LEUKEMIA, MYELOGENOUS, CHRONIC, BCR-ABL POSITIVE. The p190(bcr-abl) fusion protein is found in patients with PRECURSOR CELL LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA. The activation of human c-abl by chromosomal translocation is essentially the same as the activation of murine c-abl by viral translocation in ABELSON MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS.
