t(6;11)(q21;q23) translocation (6q21 and 11q23) in secondary acute myeloblastic leukemia
Nota bene: Two other forkhead genes have been shown to be involved in distinct chromosomal translocations associated with malignancies:
the AFX gene (MIM.300033), which is fused to the MLL gene in 1 type of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)
the FOXOA1 (MIM.136533) gene, which is fused to the PAX3 (MIM.606597) or PAX7 (MIM.167410) gene in alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma.
