y1: Gene expression signatures in acute lymphocytic leukemia for...



Several distinct genetic mechanisms lead to acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) malignant transformations deriving from distinct lymphoid precursor cells that have been committed to either T-lineage or B-lineage differentiation. Chromosome translocations and molecular rearrangements are common events in B-lineage ALL and reflect distinct mechanisms of transformation. The B cell Receptor (BCR/ABL) gene rearrangement occurs in about 25% of cases in adult ALL, and much less frequently in pediatric ALL. y1 dataset contains gene expression signatures of BCR signaling pathway (composed by 35 gene products, n.columns = 35) in acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) cells associated with presence of BCR/ABL gene rearrangement (n. rows = 37). Expression values are normalized according to rma and quantile normalization.
