STIL FISH Probe
The STIL FISH probe is designed to hybridize to the STIL 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.

This gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein implicated in regulation of the mitotic spindle checkpoint, a regulatory pathway that monitors chromosome segregation during cell division to ensure the proper distribution of chromosomes to daughter cells. The protein is phosphorylated in mitosis and in response to activation of the spindle checkpoint, and disappears when cells transition to G1 phase. It interacts with a mitotic regulator, and its expression is required to efficiently activate the spindle checkpoint. It is proposed to regulate Cdc2 kinase activity during spindle checkpoint arrest. Chromosomal deletions that fuse this gene and the adjacent locus commonly occur in T cell leukemias, and are thought to arise through illegitimate V-(D)-J recombination events. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Nijmegen breakage syndrome (NBS) is a rare genetic disorder associated with an increased risk of developing lymphoproliferative malignancy. The lack of data around NBS genetics has led to limited biomarker validation and underdeveloped diagnostic protocols. This team followed a 4 year-old NBS patient, from initial diagnosis to eventual development to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and tracked the genetic progression of his disease throughout. Our STIL break apart probe detected STIL duplication in the patient, one of the many lesions contributing to his complex karyotype.
