Clinical significance:
The t(11;14) translocation leads to juxtaposition of the Immunoglobulin Heavy Chain loci with the CCND1 (Cyclin D1) gene and is found in almost all cases of mantle cell lymphoma.  The t(11;14) is not specific for mantle cell lymphoma however, as it can be identified in other B-cell neoplasms, including plasma cell myeloma.
