About 100 guests from 36 countries met on the XVIII. MetaSystems Distributor Meeting (DM) in November to exchange experiences and to get to know new trends and developments at MetaSystems.
XL MYC BA
Break Apart Probe
- Order Number
- Package Size
- 100 µl (10 Tests)
XL MYC BA consists of an orange-labeled probe hybridizing proximal to the MYC gene region at 8q24.21 and a green-labeled probe hybridizing distal to the MYC gene region at 8q24.21.
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.
Translocations involving MYC are observed in diffuse large-B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, and other lymphomas. In Burkitt Lymphoma, the MYC gene, located at 8q24, is activated by a translocation next to an immunoglobulin constant gene. Most frequently, MYC is positioned near the immunoglobulin heavy-chain (IGH) constant region on chromosome 14q32. However, in some tumors MYC can also be positioned near the light-chain region on chromosome 2p11 (IGK) or 22q11 (IGL). In addtion, other translocation partners have been identified (e.g. BCL11A, PAX5, ZCCHC7).
The XL MYC probe is designed as a break apart probe with two probes juxtaposed and differentially labeled. The proximal and distal regions are sufficiently large to achieve intense signals also on paraffin-embedded tissue sections. The wide gap between the orange and green part of this probe allows for the detection of the t(2;8) translocation as well as t(8;14) and t(8;22).
- Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas (NHL)
- Solid Tumors (Solid Tumors)
Two green-orange (2GO) fusion signals.
Aberrant Cell (typical results):
One green (1G), one orange (1O), and one green-orange (1GO) fusion signal, indicating a chromosome break in the MYC locus.
