The yearly MetaSystems Distributor Meeting (DM), brought into life in 2002 as a platform to gather all international partners of MetaSystems and other members of the global MetaSystems family, just ended last week. The DM is being organized in turns by MetaSystems Headquarters, MetaSystems USA (MGI), and MetaSystems Asia. Since MGI is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2018 they decided to choose a special location: Nassau, The Bahamas!
XL MYC BA
Break Apart Probe

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 differently labeled. The proximal and distal region is 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.
