- KAL1, Xp22.31, Red
- STS, Xp22.31, Green
- DXZ1, Xp11.1-q11.1, Green
The KAL1 probe is 334kb, labeled in red that spans the entire KAL1 gene and the DXS278 and DXS7053 markers. The STS probe is 282kb, labeled in green and covers most of the HDHD1 and STS genes. The probe mix also contains a control probe for the X centromere (DXZ1), labeled in green.
I first came across Cytocell FISH probes in a previous lab I worked in and I was struck by the quality of the products. Since this time, I have been recommending and introducing Cytocell probes across all application areas — now they are the primary FISH probes used in our lab. They have an excellent range of products and their ready-to-use reagent format saves considerable time. As a matter of fact, at a recent conference there was a discussion about the lack of commercial probes for a particular disorder and I was happy to point the participants in the direction of the Cytocell catalogue, which contains the exact probes required.
