DNA To remember the chromosomal translocations easily

This is my way


First, we have t(8;14), t(11,14) and t(14;18)

Burkitt's lymphoma = 8urkittīs lymphoma = t(8;14)
Mantle cell lymphoma = Mantle ce11 lymphoma = t(11,14)
Follicular lymphoma = count the letters = 18 = t(14;18)

Philadelphia Chromosome = count the letters = 22 and the P looks like a 9 = t(9,22)

Acute promyelocytic leukemia (M3) - Retinoic acid receptor alpha...I just remember "sweet fifteen" for t(15;17)...but I donīt have an explanation for it...

12:21 actually looks like a giant "A" (connect the two lateral 1's to form a triangle)...with two "LL" in the middle for the "22"

Man(D1) cell: 11:14 translocation (with some imagination "M" could look like a "5" that fell sideways to the left). 5 = 1+4 for 11:14. And manD1e cell is for the cyline-D1. May be a stretch, but it works for me. Good luck.
