BCR/ABL(ABL1) Plus Translocation, Dual Fusion
- ABL1, 9q34.11-q34.12, Red
- BCR, 22q11.22-q11.23, Green
- ASS1, 9q34.11-q34.12, Blue
The BCR/ABL1 probe mix contains a 169kb green probe centromeric to the BCR gene and contains the genes GNAZ and RAB36. A second green probe covers a 148kb region telomeric to the BCR gene and covers part of the IGLL1 gene. A red probe covers a 346kb region that spans the ABL1 gene. There is an additional blue probe that covers a 173kb region and spans the whole ASS1 gene.
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.
