Molecular biology

- TFEB-MALAT1 fusion gene by t(6;11)(p21;q13)

  • MALAT1 is rearranged in renal tumors harboring the t(6;11)(p21;q13) translocation, and noncoding MALAT1 transcripts are overexpressed in a number of human carcinomas.

- MALAT1-MHLB1 fusion in mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver (MHL)(17311249)

  • MALAT1 gene at 11q13
  • MHLB1 locus at 19q13.4

- MALAT1-GLI1 fusion in tumors
