BCR/ABL(ABL1) Plus Translocation, Dual Fusion
The BCR probe mix contains a probe, which extends 169kb centromeric to BCR and contains the genes GNAZ and RAB36. A second probe covers a 148kb region, which is positioned 261kb telomeric to BCR. Both are labeled in green. For ABL1 a probe contig covers 346kb from the middle of the FUBP3 gene to a point 64kb telomeric to ABL1 and it is labeled in red. There is an additional blue probe that covers a 173kb region and spans the whole ASS1 gene. The ASS1 probe is located 212kb from centromeric end of the ABL1 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.
