Workshop Images

a) Fluorescent in situ Hybridization (FISH) on a RAJI interphase cell using the LSI
Myc dual color, break apart rearrangement probe (Vysis) to detect a Myc break
point translocation between chromosomes 8 and 14. The translocated chromosomes carry a green dot (chr. 14) and a red dot (chr. 8).

 


b) FISH on a Jurkat interphase cells using the same probe to detect a Myc break. This cell line does not carry a translocation.


c) FISH on a mixture of RAJI and Jurkat interphase cells using the same probe. 1) Jurkat (normal) 2) RAJI (translocated) 3) tetraploid RAJI (translocation)
