3. Protein

  Representation of the AF10 protein modified by Linder B et al. J Mol Biol 2000 and Jones LK et al. Leukemia 2001.
Description 1027 amino acids; 109 KDa; N-term - LAP (leukemia associated protein)/PHD finger - Ext-LAP/PHD (Cys-rich region) - NLS (nuclear localisation signal) - AT-hook - LZ (leucine zipper) - Gln-rich domain - C-term
Expression mainly in the testis
Localisation nuclear
Function transcription factor
Homology with AF17 and BR140

4. Implicated in

Entity t(10;11)(p12;q23)/AML -->KMT2A-MLLT10
Disease mainly M4/M5 AML
Cytogenetics Due to the opposite orientation of AF10 and MLL on their respective chromosome arms, MLL-AF10 gene fusion requires complex rearrangements with three or more breakpoints. An inversion of the 5'MLL or 3'AF10 is required in order to allow an in-frame MLL-AF10 fusion.
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' MLL - 3' AF10; breakpoints are at variable places along AF10
Abnormal Protein The AF10 Ext-LAP/PHD is always deleted, as are the MLL PHD fingers. Both retain the C-term LZ domain necessary for malignant transformation.
Entity inv ins(10;11)(p12;q23q12)/AML -->KMT2A - MLLT10
Disease One case of pediatric M5 AML
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' MLL - 3' AF10 and 5' AF10 - 3' HEAB, a gene at 11q12
Abnormal Protein only MLL-AF10 is expressed
Entity t(10;11)(p13;q14-21)-->CALM-MLLT10 and/or AF10-CALM
Disease Present both in myeloid and non myeloid acute leukemias: in T-cell ALL specific to TCRgd lineage; in myeloid leukemia described in FAB M0-AML, M1-AML, M5-AML, M7-AML.
Prognosis poor
Cytogenetics may well be confused with the above t(10;11)(p12;q23)
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' CALM - 3' AF10 and 5' AF10 - 3' CALM
In a 5' breakpoint cluster region (nucleotides 424 and 589), AF10 sequences retained the Ext-LAP/PHD domain. The presence of these kind of sequences seems to be necessary for maturation toward the TCRgd lineage, whereas their absence leads to maturation arrest at a more immature stage.
Abnormal Protein both CALM-AF10 and the reciprocal AF10-CALM are expressed. However, the CALM-AF10 contains most of the functional domains present in each of the two proteins.

5. Breakpoints

Note the breakpoint in the t(10;11)(p13;q14-21) is more in 5' of AF10
