Description

XL FOXO1 BA

XL FOXO1 BA consists of a green-labeled probe hybridizing proximal to the FOXO1 gene region at 13q14.1 and an orange-labeled probe hybridizing distal to the FOXO1 gene region at 13q14.1.

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

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a relatively rare cancer type but it is the most common soft tissue sarcoma in children and adolescents. The histopathological classification includes several subtypes: embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (ERMS) and alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS) are the most common variants, in the order of their occurrence. ARMS is associated with a worse outcome and is characterized by the two reciprocal translocations t(2;13)(q35;q14) and t(1;13) (p36;q14), affecting the FOXO1 gene region and PAX3 or PAX7 respectively, in about 80% of cases. The result is an in-frame fusion of the PAX DNA binding domain with the transcriptional active domain of FOXO1 generating a highly potent chimeric activator for PAX target genes. Patients harboring FOXO1-PAX3/7 fusions have an inferior event-free survival compared to patients without translocation, suggesting that the molecular status in RMS provides valuable prognostic information.
