The t(X;18)(p11.2;q11.2) translocation found in human synovial sarcomas involves two distinct loci on the X chromosome.
A high proportion of synovial sarcomas contain the reciprocal translocation t(X;18)(p11.2;q11.2). We have previously localized the breakpoint on the X chromosome between the X chromosome marker DXS255 and an ornithine aminotransferase (OAT) pseudogene region designated OATL2. Subsequently by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) we provided evidence that YACs corresponding to the OATL2 locus spanned the break-point. In order to confirm the position of this breakpoint cosmids corresponding...Expand abstract
