We have recently cloned the inv(8)(p11q13) in a patient with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and demonstrated a fusion between the MOZ and TIF2 genes at 8p11 and 8q13, respectively. We have partially characterized a further case of AML with the same karyotypic abnormality. Rearrangements were detected by Southern blotting with a TIF2 probe that was close to the breakpoint in the original inv(8) case and with a MOZ probe corresponding to the breakpoint cluster region in the t(8;16)(p11;p13). These findings indicate the existence of breakpoint cluster regions within both genes and demonstrate that the MOZ-TIF2 fusion is consistently associated with the inv(8)(p11q13).
