The proto-oncogene TCL1 located at 14q32.1 is overexpressed in a variety of lymphoid neoplasms, including T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (T-PLL), T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma (T-ALL/LBL), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infected B-cell lymphomas and AIDS-related lymphomas. The overexpression of TCL1 usually results from juxtaposition to a T-cell receptor locus via a translocation or inversion.

1-3 mL bone marrow in transport medium or 3-5 mL whole blood in a
sodium heparin tube (green top, dark/royal blue top, tan top).
Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tumor biopsy or 5 mm x 5 mm
fresh tumor biopsy in transport medium.

Clinical history/reason for referral is required with test order.
Prior therapy and transplant history should be provided with test
order.
