Abstract

Genetic aberrations involving region ql3–15 of human chromosome 12 are frequently observed in solid tumours (Sandberg 1990; Mitelman 1991). In myxoid liposarcoma, for instance, the primary cytogenetic change is mostly the highly consistent reciprocal translocation t(12;16)(q13;p11) or the more complex three-way translocation also involving chromosome 1 (Turc-Carel et al. 1986a; Ohjimi et al. 1992). Cytogenetic analysis of lipomas, a subgroup of benign adipose tissue tumours, has revealed that in these tumours region ql3–15 of chromosome 12 is also frequently involved in reciprocal translocations; in contrast to myxoid liposarcomas, however, various chromosomes act as translocation partner (Turc-Carel et al. 1986b; Sreekantaiah et al. 1991). The same cytogenetic region of chromosome 12 is also implicated in translocations in a subclass of cytogenetically abnormal uterine leiomyomas (Pandis et al. 1991) and pleomorphic adenomas of the salivary gland (Sandros et al. 1990). Comparison of available cytogenetic data suggests that the chromosome 12 breakpoint in myxoid liposarcoma is proximal to those in the three benign tumours; this might point towards the implication of different genetic sequences. Identification and molecular characterization of the chromosome 12 breakpoints in cells of the four tumours should shed more light on this matter.
