DLBCL : Gene Expression

slide 26 of 88

Comments:
Gene expression profiling using DNA microarrays have identified 2 groups of diffuse large B-cell lymphomas: 1) germinal center B-cell like (GCB) that expresses genes characteristic of germinal center B-cells and correlates with the presence of BCL2 rearrangement and t(14;18) translocation; 2) activated B-cell like (ABC) which correlates with BCL6 rearrangement and t(3;14)(q27;q32). Of the two types, GCB has better prognosis than the ABC type with current chemotherapeutic regimens.
