The FAM57A FISH probe is designed to hybridize to the FAM57A gene and is primarily used for detecting amplifications and deletions associated with the gene. This probe is FISH confirmed on normal peripheral blood metaphase spreads and interphase nuclei. The probe can be labeled in one of five colors. Each probe is sold in a 20 test kit (approximately 20 slides - 22x22 mm area) and includes hybridization buffer. Please note that due to design optimizations, prices are subject to change.

Gene Summary

The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane-associated protein that promotes lung carcinogenesis. The encoded protein may be involved in amino acid transport and glutathione metabolism since it can interact with a solute carrier family member (SLC3A2) and an isoform of gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase-like 3. An alternatively spliced variant encoding a protein that lacks a 32 aa internal segment showed the opposite effect, inhibiting lung cancer cell growth. Knockdown of this gene also inhibited lung carcinogenesis and tumor cell growth. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]
