CytoTest LSP FGFR3 3' FISH ProbeCT-LSP132
The FGFR3 3’ FISH Probe is designed to detect the human FGFR3 gene 3’-region located on chromosome band 4p16.3. FGFR3 is also known as ACH, CEK2, JTK4, CD333 or HSFGFR3EX.
The FGFR3 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 FGFR3 3' FISH probe hybridizes to chromosome 4 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 4p16.3 region on the chromosome 4. In metaphase cells, a “doublet” or “split signal” may appear on chromosomal region 4p16.3. Each signal within the doublet represents one of the two sister chromatids present in the replicated chromosome 4.
