In a large-scale study using direct sequencing for each polymerase chain reaction product, the authors documented the frequency of K-Ras and N-Ras mutations in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukemia. K-Ras mutations were detected in 40% of patients who had ALL that was positive for mixed-lineage leukemia gene (MLL) rearrangements, a proportion that was significantly higher compared with that among patients who had MLL-negative B-precursor ALL.
