CytoTest LSP CBFB 3' FISH ProbeCT-LSP128
The CBFB 3’ FISH Probe is designed to detect the human CBFB gene 3’-region located on chromosome band 16q22.1. CBFB is also known as CBFb or PEBP2B.
The CBFB 3' FISH probe is labeled with CytoGreen. CytoGreen is a fluorophore with an excitation peak at 495nm and emission peak at 518nm, giving it a green fluorescent signal with the appropriate filters.
The CBFB 3' FISH probe hybridizes to chromosome 16 in both metaphase and interphase cells. After hybridizing with normal human peripheral blood lymphocyte samples, two distinct fluorescent spots are observed in the interphase nuclei, each spot corresponding to the 16q22.1 region on the chromosome 16. In metaphase cells, a “doublet” or “split signal” may appear on chromosomal region 16q22.1. Each signal within the doublet represents one of the two sister chromatids present in the replicated chromosome 16.
