What Is Philadelphia Positive Leukemia?

Video

When a cell divides to make new cells, the chromosomes normally stay the same. But sometimes mistakes happen. With Philadelphia positive leukemia, a gene called the ABL1 gene on chromosome 9 breaks off and sticks to a gene called the BCR gene on chromosome 22. It produces a new gene called BCR-ABL1 which causes the cell to make too much of a protein called tyrosine kinase. This protein encourages leukemia cells to grow and multiply.
