Molecular studies on human acute myeloid leukemia with chromosome translocation and development of gene therapy against leukemia
1990 - 0
Investigating Researcher (2)：
The precise mapping of chromosomal breakpoint on t(8:21) frequently observed in acute myeloid leukemia have led to the identification of a fused gene generated by the translocation. The molecular mechanism of leukemogenesis is studied by analyzing the function of the fused gene product. Gene therapy targeted against the fused gene is under investigation.
