Ribophorin I (RPN1) is a gene that encodes a membrane protein of the rough endoplasmic reticulum that is a component of an N-oligosaccharyl transferase complex (Gene 2013a). In cancer, rearrangements involving RPN1 have been observed in AML.

MDS1 and EVI1 complex locus (MECOM, also known as EVI1) is a gene that encodes a transcriptional regulator protein (Gene 2013b). In cancer, rearrangements involving EVI1 have been observed in AML. Its role is also being investigated in MDS and other cancers.

The RPN1-EVI1 fusion has been observed in AML and CML (Lee et al. 2010​).
