Chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) cells are often characterized by the presence of a small chromosome 22, in which most of the q arm has been translocated to chromosome 9. Using cell hybrids containing different parts of chromosome 22 I have mapped the c-sis oncogene, which is known to be situated on chromosome 22, to a region distal to the CML breakpoint (22q112) and proximal to 22q13. This demonstrates that c-sis is translocated to chromosome 9 in CML cells.
