gb ONCO BRAF (V600)

The kit is used to detect and quantify the BRAF V600E, E2, D, D2, K, R and M somatic mutations in human genomic DNA. The principle of detection is based on real-time PCR methodology with the use of fluorescently labelled probes and allele-specific primers. The kit contains all components necessary to perform the analysis.

Clinical implications

Single nucleotide mutation of the BRAF V600 gene leads to increased activation of the MAP kinase cascade, resulting in proliferation and dedifferentiation. However, the BRAF gene mutation alone is not sufficient to induce a malignant transformation. Its role lies more in the progression of the disease than in the initiation.

The occurrence of the BRAF V600E mutation was observed, for example, in melanoma, Langerhans’ ischemia of the pancreas, or ovarian and colon cancer. BRAF gene mutations are also associated with several tumors (malignant melanoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, thyroid papillary carcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma and lung adenocarcinoma). Before initiating treatment with vemurafenib or dabrafenib, patients should be confirmed with the validated test of the V600 mutation of the BRAF gene. Vemurafenib is not suitable for patients with malignant melanoma and a wild type variant of the BRAF gene.

    gb Easy PCR Master Mix consists of hot-start Taq DNA polymerase, reaction buffer, dNTP and MgCl2. The Taq polymerase is chemically modified DNA polymerase from Thermus aquaticus. This polymerase is completely inactive at room temperature but it is rapidly activated during the initial denaturation step of PCR. The product falls into a group of TaqMan Real-Time PCR Master Mixes to provide probe-based qPCR.
