Differential expression of AF4/FEL mRNA in human tissues

Genet Anal. 1996 Jan;12(3-4):147-9. doi: 10.1016/1050-3862(95)00127-1.


This manuscript reports the differential expression of the AF4 gene among human tissues. AF4 mRNA is highly expressed in normal placental tissue which correlates with the newborn age of patients presenting with leukemia characterized by the MLL/AF4 gene rearrangement.
