The recurrent translocations t(11;19) and t(11;15) resulting in CRTC1-MAML2 or CRTC3-MAML2 fusion oncogenes, respectively, are identified in a large proportion of mucoepidermoid carcinomas (MECs) of the salivary gland and have impact on prognosis.
It was speculated that extensive squamous metaplasia could explain the presence of t(11;19) translocation in a subset of WTs.
