BCR/ABL gene

(jēn)
A fusion gene produced when a segment of the Abelson protooncogene, ABL, from chromosome 9, translocates to the major breakpoint cluster region (M-BCR) on chromosome 22. The fusion gene produces a specific protein, P210. This fusion gene is found in chronic myelocytic leukemia (CML).
