3). The retinoblastoma gene was initially assigned to chromosome 13 band q14 by reports of children with retinoblastoma and interstitial deletions of chromosome 13. About 3 % of children with retinoblastoma will have a cytogenetically visible chromosome 13 deletion or translocation. Retinoblastoma cases with constitutional chromosome deletion may have associated mental retardation, and most have reduced serum levels of esterase D (the gene for which maps close to the retinoblastoma gene (RB1)).
