Leukemia, Acute Lymphoblastic; All

Description

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), also known as acute lymphocytic leukemia, is a subtype of acute leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells. Somatically acquired mutations in several genes have been identified in ALL lymphoblasts, cells in the early stages of differentiation. Germline variation in certain genes may also predispose to susceptibility to ALL (Trevino et al., 2009). Genetic Heterogeneity of Acute Lymphoblastic LeukemiaA susceptibility locus for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL1) has been mapped to chromosome 10q21. See also ALL2 (OMIM ), which has been mapped to chromosome 7p12.2; and ALL3 (OMIM ), which is caused by mutation in the PAX5 gene (OMIM ) on chromosome 9p.
