MECOM Break Apart FISH Probe
Our MECOM tri-color break apart probe is designed to detect MECOM translocations. The probe comes labeled in orange, green, and aqua, but can be customized to meet your needs.
Gene Background: MECOM (MDS1 and EVI1 complex locus) encodes a zinc finger protein that acts as a transcriptional regulator.1 Abnormal MECOM expression usually results from its rearrangement, the most common being inv(3)(q21;q26.2) and t(3;21)(q36.2;q22).2 The breakpoints for these abnormalities differ considerably.3 The gene is frequently mutated in hematological malignancies of myeloid origin, including acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).2 AML with inv(3)(q21q26.2) or t(3;3)(q21;q26.2) is a WHO-recognized disease entity, characterized by aberrations involving MECOM at 3q26.2 and RPN1 (ribophorin I) at 3q21.2 MECOM has also been found rearranged in therapy-related disease via t(3;21)(q26.2;q22), resulting in fusion with RUNX1.3
