Structural Abnormalities

Selected list of common recurrent structural abnormalities - Chromosome 20:

Abnormality Type Gene(s)
t(20;22) EWSR1-NFATC2 in Ewing's SarcomaTranslocationNFATC2 (20q13.2)EWSR1 (22q12.2)
Occasional translocation of MAFB in MyelomaTranslocationMAFB (20q11.2-q13.1)

This is a highly selective list aiming to capture structural abnormalies which are frequesnt and/or significant in relation to diagnosis, prognosis, and/or characterising specific cancers. For a much more extensive list see the Mitelman Database of Chromosome Aberrations and Gene Fusions in Cancer.
