Abstract

A subset of AML-M2/M4Eo patients has been shown to carry c-kit mutations suggesting that myelomonoblastic leukemia cells, disrupting core binding factor through t(8;21) or inv(16) chromosomal rearrangements, have a common differentiation stage suitable to c-kit mutation. In rare core binding factor leukemia patients an increased dosage of a mutated Asp816(Tyr/Val) kit allele is achieved through nonrandom duplication of chromosome 4 where the c-kit gene is located.
