Clinical Significance:
Translocations involving the TFE3 gene at Xp11.2 have been described in a subset of tumors including renal cell carcinomas as well as in alveolar soft part sarcoma (see reference 3). TFE3 FISH is therefore indicated where the presence of a TFE3 translocation is being considered during the pathologic evaluation of the tumor.
