The MLL (KMT2A) Breakapart FISH Probe Kit is a fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) Test used to detect rearrangement of the MLL (KMT2A) region on chromosome 11 at location 11q23.3 in fixed bone marrow specimens from patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). It consists of an 87kb probe, labeled in Texas Red, covering a region telemetric to the MLL (KMT2A) gene including the marker SHGC-111513 and a FITC green probe covering a 170kb region centromeric to the MLL (KMT2A) gene spanning the CD3G and UBE4A genes.
