The meeting of the German Society of Human Genetics (gfh) was held in Weimar, Germany this week and of course the attendees had the opportunity to visit the joined booth of MetaSystems and MetaSystems Probes. Main topics of the exhibition have been the latest advancements of the Neon case and imaging platform and RapidHyb, the revolutionary fast hybridization times of MetaSystems Probes' FISH probes.
XL MALT1 BA
Break Apart Probe
- Order Number
- Package Size
- 100 µl (10 Tests)
The XL MALT1 BA probe is designed as a break apart probe. Its orange labeled part hybridizes proximal to the MALT1 gene at 18q21, the green labeled probe hybridizes to the distal region of MALT1.
This probe is intended for methanol/acetic-acid fixed cells and tissue sections.
Probe map details based on UCSC Genome Browser GRCh37/hg19. Map components not to scale.
The MALT1 gene was identified through its involvement in t(11;18)(q21;q21), seen in 30% of cases of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. The t(11;18)(q21;q21) is restricted to MALT lymphomas and has not been detected in nodal or splenic marginal zone lymphomas, diffuse large B-cell lymphomas, or other non-Hodgkin lymphomas. The second most frequent translocation identified in MALT lymphoma is the t(14;18)(q32;q21) IGH/MALT1. The t(14;18)(q32;q21) IGH/MALT1 is found most often in MALT lymphomas arising at non-gastric sites, and is identified in 5-25% of cases arising in the ocular adnexa, lung, salivary gland and skin.
The oncogenic activity of MALT1 is linked to it's involvement of the CARMA1-BCL10-MALT1 (CBM) complex in antigen receptor-mediated activation of the transcription factor NF-kB, which controls the expression of numerous anti-apoptotic and proliferation-promoting genes.
- 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 MALT1 locus.
