complicons: complex translocations spwan a form of lymphoma
HHMI researchers have identified how a form of lymphoma develops when large pieces of chromosomes swap locations. Their observations about how chromosome rearrangements, or translocations, cause pro-B cell lymphoma in mice offer a fresh perspective on how cancers arise from an increased "dosage" of specific genes or regions of the genome.
