CytoTest LSP MDM2 FISH ProbeCT-LSP010
The MDM2 FISH Probe is designed to detect the human MDM2 gene located on chromosome band 12q15. MDM2 is also known as HDMX, hdm2 orACTFS.
The MDM2 FISH probe is labeled with CytoOrange. CytoOrange is a fluorophore with an excitation peak at 551nm and emission peak at 575nm, giving it an orange fluorescent signal with the appropriate filters.
The MDM2 FISH probe hybridizes to chromosome 12 in both metaphase and interphase cells. After hybridizing with normal human peripheral blood lymphocyte samples, two distinct orange fluorescent spots are observed in the interphase nuclei, each spot corresponding to the 12q15 region on the chromosome 12. In metaphase cells, a “doublet” or “split signal” may appear on chromosomal region 12q15. Each signal within the doublet represents one of the two sister chromatids present in the replicated chromosome 12.
