The PITX3 FISH probe is designed to hybridize to the PITX3 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

This gene encodes a member of the RIEG/PITX homeobox family, which is in the bicoid class of homeodomain proteins. Members of this family act as transcription factors. This protein is involved in lens formation during eye development. Mutations of this gene have been associated with anterior segment mesenchymal dysgenesis and congenital cataracts.

Genomic Fusions in Pigmented Spindle Cell Nevus of Reed

Pigmented spindle cell nevus (PSCN) of Reed is a type of Spitz nevus that can be difficult to diagnose. It is thought that gene fusions could be the basis of PSCN. The molecular characteristics of PSCN was under study with the use of RNA-sequencing and FISH. FISH analysis was performed with our MERTK and PITX3 fusion probes among other FISH tests. It was found that the majority of PSCN of Reed cases are the result of gene fusions, with the most frequent fusion involving NTRK3.
