The study of immunoglobulin gene rearrangements also detects cells at an early stage of B-cell development, but is not specific for the B-cell lineage, as acute myeloid leukemias occasionally have rearranged immunoglobulin genes. 4. Light-Chain Restriction The analysis of light chains using flow cytometry or immunocytochemistry is a simple tool to detect clonality in neoplasms that express light chains (κ or λ) on their surface or in their cytoplasm. , chronic lymphocytic leukemia or follicular lymphomas) express surface light chains, whereas tumor cells of multiple myeloma or some acute lymphoblastic leukemias express only cytoplasmic light chains.

Next in the order of electrophoretic mobility are the α-l-globulins. Among them are acid-α-l-glycoprotein, α-l-lipoprotein, and α-l-antitrypsin. The β-2-globulin fraction contains β-2-macroglobulin, β-2-haptoglobulin (important as a binder of free hemoglobin), ceruloplasmin, β-2-lipoprotein, and transcobalamin as well as many other proteins. The γ-globulin fraction contains transferrin (an iron-binding protein) and many other proteins. , IgG, IgA, IgM, IgD, and IgE). A global deficiency of the normal immunoglobulin fraction can be recognized by a low or absent γ fraction in the serum electrophoresis.

TPO is the ligand for the c-MPL receptor, which is present on early hemopoietic progenitor cells, megakaryocytes, and platelets. The m-RNA for TPO is expressed in the liver, kidney, and to a lesser extent in stromal cells of spleen and bone marrow. Signaling via c-MPL involves activation of the JAK[Janus kinase]/STAT and Ras signaling pathways. The serum levels of TPO are high in thrombocytopenic patients and low in normal individuals. TPO stimulates both the proliferation and maturation of cells committed to megakaryocyte Chapter 2 / Molecular Biology and Cytokines 33 production.
