MALT1 Breakapart pin


MALT1 Breakapart

Methodology: FISH

Clinical Significance:
The MALT1 beakapart FISH assay is a sensitive test that detects gene rearrangements involving the MALT1 gene but does distinguish between the different MALT1 translocation partners that have been described. The main MALT1 translocations that occur in human MALT lymphomas include the t(11;18)(q21;q21)/API-2-MALT and t(14;18)(q32;q21)/IgH-MALT. Identification of a MALT1 rearrangement is of diagnostic use in atypical B cell proliferations when the diagnosis of MALT lymphoma is being considered. Probe type: Dual color breakapart
