Description:

A mutation that gives rise to the Philadelphia chromosome gives rise to leukemia. The Philadelphia chromosome is an abnormal chromosome that results from the exchange of portions of genetic material from chromosomes 9 and 22. A mutant gene formed by this exchange codes for a protein whose action causes chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).
