HLF/TCF3 Fusion FISH Probe

Our HLF/TCF fusion probe is designed to detect fusions between HLF and TCF3. The probe comes labeled in orange and green, but can be customized to meet your needs.

Gene Background: HLF-TCF3 fusion produces a chimeric transcription factor that promotes apoptotic resistance during leukemic cell transformation.1 The fusion links the amino-terminal transactivation domains of TCF3 with the carboxy-terminal leucine zipper and basic domain of HLF, resulting in a hybrid protein with abnormal DNA binding affinity.1 HKF-TCF3 fusion is found in approximately 1% of acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients, where it's more frequent in children and young adults.2 Clinically, the abnormality is correlated with disseminated intravascular coagulation, hypercalcemia at diagnosis, and short survival.2

Gene Summary

This gene encodes a member of the proline and acidic-rich (PAR) protein family, a subset of the bZIP transcription factors. The encoded protein forms homodimers or heterodimers with other PAR family members and binds sequence-specific promoter elements to activate transcription. Chromosomal translocations fusing portions of this gene with the E2A gene cause a subset of childhood B-lineage acute lymphoid leukemias. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described, but their biological validity has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
