The inner cytosine methylation in site CCGG of the human calcitonin gene was revealed in the DNA samples obtained from peripheral blood and bone marrow of patients with acute myeloid leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome and also from patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in blast crisis phase. It is shown that the CCGG site's methylation of this area is a characteristic property of tumor progression in leukemias of myeloid origin. The calcitonin gene methylation state might be a diagnostic marker in monitoring of myeloid disorders.
