In the course of our study on the amplification of 11q13 sequences in human breast cancer, we have investigated the amplification status of the anonymous DNA fragment D11S97 in a series of 125 mammary tumors. Our results indicate that, as with bladder carcinomas, D11S97 can be amplified separately from BCL1. In addition, we have shown that D11597 is physically linked to both D11S146 and BCL1, and is less than 100 kb centromeric to the D115146. These results indicate that, in addition to other 11q13 loci, sequences located approximately 500 kb centromeric from BCL1 could contribute to carcinogenesis of epithelial cells in vivo.
