I would appreciate if someone would explain to me what Philadelphia chromosome is.
I appreciate the answer!
Philadelphia chromosome has (in laic answer) something to do with blood. It is a abnormal minute chromosome found in white blood cells. In many cases it is associated with chronic myelocytic leukemia (95 % of patients with CML show this abnormality). Philadelphia chromosome is also connected to acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and occasionally to acute myelogenous leukemia.
