Groschel et al (59) have showed that the rearrangements of 3q21q26.2 in a form of inversion [inv(3)] or translocation [t(3;3)] result in reallocation of G2DHE to physically interact with the promoter of EVI1, leading to 2 simultaneous events: an ectopically activating EVI1 oncogene, and the concomitant loss of enhancer activity for endogenous GATA2 function with resultant GATA2 haploinsufficiency (59) (Figure 3, C).
