XL 7q22/7q36

XL 7q22/7q36 consists of an orange-labeled probe hybridizing to the KMT2E gene region at 7q22, a green-labeled probe hybridizing to the CUL1/EZH2 gene region at 7q36 and an aqua-labeled probe hybridizing to the centromere of chromosome 7.

Probe maps are created in accordance with the intended purpose of the product. Solid colored bars do not necessarily indicate that the probe fully covers the indicated genomic region. Therefore, caution is advised when interpreting results generated through off-label use. Probe map details based on UCSC Genome Browser GRCh37/hg19. Map components not to scale. Further information is available on request.

Clinical Details

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and myeloproliferative disorders are associated with deregulated production of myeloid cells. According to WHO classification (2017), recurrent cytogenetic aberrations are observed in about 50% of MDS cases. The most common aberrations are 5q-, 7/7q-, trisomy 8, del(20q), and inv(3) or t(3;3).
Loss of chromosome 7 (-7) or deletion of the long arm (7q-) are recurrent chromosome abnormalities in myeloid leukemias such as MDS or acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The association of -7/7q with myeloid leukemia suggests that certain regions contain tumor suppressor gene(s), whose loss of function contribute to leukemic transformation or tumor progression. Multiple critical regions have been identified: one in band 7q22 (including the KMT2E gene), the more telomeric region 7q31 and 7q35-q36 (including the EZH2 gene).

Clinical Applications

  • Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
  • Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)
