Role of co-repressors in transcriptional repression mediated by the t(8;21), t(16;21), t(12;21), and inv(16) fusion proteins

The t(8;21), t(16;21), inv(16), and t(12;21) are some of the most frequent chromosomal translocations found in acute myeloid and acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The fusion proteins created by these chromosomal translocations are transcriptional repressors. A full understanding of the types of proteins that these fusion proteins recruit to repress transcription will not only clarify understanding of the molecular mechanism of action of these fusion proteins but also provide further targets for therapeutic intervention.
