The SALSA MLPA Probemix P175 Tumour Gain is a research use only (RUO)
assay for the detection of copy number aberrations in 24 genes, which are frequently gained or amplified in various tumour types. This probemix can also be used to detect the presence of the BRAF
p.V600E (c.1799T>A) point mutation.
The SALSA MLPA Probemix P175-B1 Tumour Gain contains 62 MLPA probes with amplification products between 115 and 504 nucleotides (nt). This includes two probes for the following genes: ABL1, ALK, AR, AURKA/B, BRAF, CCND1/2, CDK4, DHFR, EGFR, ERBB2, FGFR1, KDR, KIT, MDM2/4, MET, MYC, MYCN, PDGFRA, RET, SMO
. Furthermore, it also contains one probe specific for the BRAF
p.V600E (c.1799T>A) point mutation which will only generate a signal when the mutation is present. In addition, 13 reference probes are included and detect different autosomal chromosomal locations which are relatively stable in most tumour types. However, it should be noted that tumour karyotypes can harbour multiple numerical and structural aberrations, which can complicate interpretation of these reference probes. Complete probe sequences and the identity of the genes detected by the reference probes is available in Table 2b of the product description and online (www.mlpa.com
This probemix contains nine quality control fragments generating amplification products between 64 and 121 nt: four DNA Quantity fragments (Q-fragments), two DNA Denaturation fragments (D-fragments), one Benchmark fragment, and one chromosome X and one chromosome Y-specific fragment. More information on how to interpret observations on these control fragments can be found in the MLPA General Protocol and online at www.mlpa.com
SALSA Binning DNA SD029:
The SD029 Binning DNA provided with this probemix can be used as Binning DNA sample for binning of one mutation-specific probe (BRAF
probe 08780-SP0039-L08904 for the p.V600E (c.1799T>A) point mutation). SD029 Binning DNA is a mixture of genomic DNA from healthy individuals and plasmid DNA that contains the target sequence detected by the above mentioned probe. Inclusion of one reaction with 5 μl SD029 Binning DNA in initial MLPA experiments is essential as it can be used to aid in data binning of the peak pattern using Coffalyser.Net software. Furthermore, Binning DNA should be included in the experiment whenever changes have been applied to the set-up of the capillary electrophoresis device (e.g. when capillaries have been renewed). Binning DNA should never be used as a reference sample in the MLPA data analysis, neither should it be used in quantification of the mutation signal, as for this purpose true mutation positive patient samples or cell lines should be used. It is strongly advised to use test DNA sample and reference DNA samples extracted with the same method and derived from the same source of tissue. For further details, please consult the SD029 Binning DNA product description provided. This product is for research use only (RUO).
