XL 19p/19q del

XL 19p/19q del detects deletions in the long arm of chromosome 19. The orange labeled probe hybridizes to the GLTSCR1 and GLTSCR2 locus at 19q13. A green labeled probe hybridizes to a specific locus at 19p13 and functions as a reference probe.

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.

Clinical Details

The 2016 ´World Health Organization Classification of Tumors of the Central Nervous System´(WHO 2016) combines, for the first time, histological features and molecular signatures for the definition of many tumor entities. Gliomas are a category of tumors of the brain and spinal cord originating in glia cells. Oligodendrogliomas are a subtype of gliomas accounting for up to 18% of all cases. According to the WHO 2016, the classification of an oligodendroglioma requires information about the isocitrate dehydrogenase mutation status and 1p/19q loss of heterozygosity (LOH). LOH of 19q can be detected in about 80% of oligodendroglial tumors and to a lower extend in mixed gliomas. Co-deletion of 1p/19q is a well-accepted prognostic biomarker in neuro-oncology. Patients suffering from anaplastic oligodendroglioma harboring 1p/19q deletion generally have a good prognosis. Co-deletion of 1p/19q also has a predictive character, the molecular status of 1p/19q is relevant for therapy decisions.

Clinical Applications

  • Solid Tumors (Solid Tumors)

Expected Patterns

Expected Pattern 1

Normal Cell:
Two green (2G) and two orange (2O) signals.

Expected Pattern 2

Aberrant Cell (typical results):
Two green (2G) and one orange (1O) signal resulting from loss of one orange signal.
