CytoTest EPOR Break Apart FISH Probe Kit - 10 testsCT-PAC203
The EPOR Break Apart FISH Probe Kit is designed to detect rearrangements in the human EPOR gene located on chromosome band 19p13.2.* In addition to revealing breaks, which can lead to translocation of parts of the gene, inversion, or its fusion to other genes, the probe set can also be used to identify other EPOR aberrations such as deletions or amplifications. Rearrangements and abnormal expression of the EPOR gene – also known as EPO-R – have been observed in B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL).
The probe is labeled with CytoOrange and CytoGreen. CytoOrange is a fluorophore with an excitation peak at 551nm and emission peak at 575nm, giving it an orange fluorescent signal with an appropriate filter; CytoGreen has an excitation peak at 495nm and emission peak at 518nm, giving it a green fluorescent signal with an appropriate filter.
