Resumen

A zinc-finger gene encoding a transcription factor that regulates hematopoiesis, MZF-1, is located at the extreme end of the q arm of human chromosome 19. Several lines of evidence indicate that MZF-1 lies less than 20 kb from the subtelomeric repeat region of 19q. Telomeres are known to degenerate as cells age; disruption of MZF-1 due to telomeric degeneration may play a role in the increased incidence of leukemia in the elderly.
