Molecular cloning of the t(11;22) breakpoints revealed an in frame fusion between the 5' end of the EWS gene from chromosome band 22q12 with the 3' portion of the 11q24 FL1 gene, a member of the ETS family of transcription factors.
A translocation involving the EWS gene on chromosome band 22q12 and other partners, most frequently the FLU gene on chromosome band 11q24, is typical for EWS/PNET and there are several different subtypes of the EWS/FLU fusion transcripts.
