Abstract: Cytogenetic aberrations involving 12q13-15 are frequently observed in a variety of benign solid tumors. Using a chromosome walking approach combined with fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis, we were able to show that the chromosome 12 breakpoints involved in uterine leiomyoma, pleomorphic adenoma of the salivary gland, and lipoma cluster to the same chromosomal region, which we therefore designated MAR (multiple-aberration region). By comparing the G-banding pattern of prometaphase chromosomes of amniotic fluid cells and lymphocytes to the position of hybridization signals obtained with a cosmid pool encompassing this breakpoint hot spot region, MAR was assigned to 12q15. We conclude that, despite the cytogenetic breakpoint assignment to the three bands 12q13-15 in individual uterine leiomyomas, lipomas, and pleomorphic adenomas of the salivary glands in the past, most likely 12q15 is the only 12q breakpoint site in these three distinct solid tumor types.
