P>Repair of DNA strand breaks induced during lymphoid antigen receptor rearrangement involves non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ). We investigated NHEJ in the aetiology of lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs) and the disease subtypes therein through real-time quantitative RT-PCR gene expression analysis. Lower expression of XRCC6 and MRE11A was observed in all tumours, with higher expression of both XRCC4 and RAD50 observed only in multiple myeloma (MM). Hierarchical clustering enabled tumours to be clearly distinguished from controls, and by morphological sub-type. We postulate this identifies targets worthy of investigation in the genetic predisposition, pathogenesis and prognosis of lymphoid malignancies.
