Chromosome X α-satellite (DXZ1) and Chromosome Y α-satellite (DYZ3)
This enumeration probe set contains chromosome specific alphoid DNA repeat sequences located at the centromeres of chromosome X and chromosome Y.
Chromosome X α-satellite (DXZ1) and Chromosome Y satellite III (DYZ1)
This enumeration probe set contains chromosome specific DNA repeat sequences located at the centromere of chromosome X and in the heterochromatic block of chromosome Y.
OGT's CytoCell® satellite probes are specific for human chromosomes. They are highly repeated human DNA sequences found in the centromere, pericentromeric or heterochromatic block of each of the 24 chromosomes. The probes enable the identification and enumeration of human chromosomes in interphase cells or metaphase chromosomes from peripheral blood samples.
I first came across CytoCell FISH probes in a previous lab I worked in and I was struck by the quality of the products. Since this time, I have been recommending and introducing CytoCell probes across all application areas — now they are the primary FISH probes used in our lab. They have an excellent range of products and their ready-to-use reagent format saves considerable time.
