Detection method: quantitative real-time PCR

This in vitro diagnostic kit is used to detect and quantify the BRAF V600E, E2, D and D2 somatic mutations in human genomic DNA. The detection principle is based on real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) using fluorescently labelled probes and allele specific primers.

Clinical implications of the CE IVD kit

Single nucleotide mutation of the BRAF V600E 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 cancers. BRAF gene mutations are also associated with a number of tumors (malignant melanoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, thyroid papillary carcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma and lung adenocarcinoma). Prior to 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 gb Easy PCR Master Mix

    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.
