VividFISH™ probe set for CEP10/PTENUser Manual
The VividFISH™ CEP10/PTEN probe set detects aberrant loss of the phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) gene on chromosome 10 (NCBI GeneID:5728). Loss of PTEN, a tumor suppressor, is associated with many cancer types, including those of the brain and breast. The VividFISH™ CEP10/PTEN probe set, which is a combination of one probe detecting the PTEN gene and a second control probe detecting the centromere of chromosome 10, provides a valuable tool for diagnosis of cancers in a variety of tissues.
