Description

XL FGFR1

The XL FGFR1 located at 8p11 is designed as a break apart probe with two probes juxtaposed and differently labeled. A green labeled probe hybridizes proximal of FGFR1 and an orange labeled probe hybridizes distal of FGFR1.

Clinical Details

In 2008 the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of tumors of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues introduced a new category for myeloid and lymphoid neoplasms with eosinophilia and abnormalities of PDGFRA, PDGFRB or FGFR1. Many of these cases present as a myeloproliferative neoplasm, usually with eosinophilia.

The 8p11 myeloproliferative syndrome (MPD) also known as stem cell leukemia-lymphoma syndrome (SCLL) is associated with translocations disrupting FGFR1. Imatinib, which induces durable responses in MPDs with PDGFRA and PDGFRB fusion genes, is inactive in patients with FGFR1 translocations.

Clinical Applications

  • Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia and Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (CML/MPN)

Images

XL FGFR1

XL FGFR1 hybridized to bone marrow cells where a subpopulation with trisomy 8 was observed. One normal interphases is shown and one interphase with three fusion signals.

Expected Patterns

Expected Pattern 1

Normal Cell:
Two green-orange fusion signals (2GO).

Expected Pattern 2

Aberrant Cell (typical results):
One green-orange fusion signal (1GO), one green (1G), and one orange (1O) signal indicating a chromosome break in the FGFR1 locus.
