Abstract
MLL (mixed lineage leukemia) gene, which is one paradigm of leukemogenesis, because it is frequently part of random chromosomal translocations that defines aunique group of acute leukemias in terms of clinical and biological features. In leukemia, MLL function is subverted by rupture, illegitimate recombination, and the formation of a chimeric fusion in which the N-terminal portion of MLL is fused to the C-terminal portion of over 50 alternative partner genes. Cytogenetic abnormalities are characteristics attribute of cancer cells. Several mechanisms including deletions, duplications, translocations etc are involved in formation of chromosomal rearrangements and their role in tumorigenesis. . A more thorough understanding of mechanisms that cause translocations will be aided by continuing characterization of translocation breakpoints. Insilco analysis of frequently occurring translocation breakpoint region of MLL gene was performed. Segmental duplicons were identified on chromosomal bands of both translocation partners. Various physico-chemical parameters were taken into consideration for characterization of chromosomal breakpoint. Result suggests possible role of segmental duplication and these
