gb ONCO EGFR (T790M) kit enables the detection and quantification of the EGFR T790M (2369C>T, rs121434569) somatic mutation in the human genomic DNA. The detection principle is based on real-time PCR methodology with the use of fluorescently labeled probes and allele-specific primers. The kit contains all components necessary to perform the analysis.

Clinical implications

The Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) is expressed on the cell surface and has tyrosine kinase activity. EGFR regulates the cell cycle via the MAPK/ERK and PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathways. Activating mutations of EGFR leads to induction of its kinase activity, which results to uncontrolled cell proliferation.

This is used in the cancer treatment by so-called tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), which bind to the ATP receptor binding site and inhibit EGFR activity. On the other side, the T790M mutation found in exon 20 leads to the TKI resistance.

Anti-EGFR TKIs are particularly useful in the treatment of lung tumors, especially non-small cell lung cancer. However, resistance to TKI develops very quickly (median 9–13 months). Therefore, detection of the T790M mutation is required before the treatment with TKI-group medicinal products.

gb SG PCR Master Mix gb SG PCR Master Mix

gb SG PCR Master Mix falls into a group of Real-Time PCR Master Mixes to provide Dye-based qPCR. The product consists of hot-start Taq DNA polymerase, reaction buffer, dNTP, MgCl2, sybrgreen and additives that prevent PCR inhibition. 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.

Background Probiotics are defined as live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. For instance, probiotics can be used in the treatment and prevention of infections and chronic inflammatory disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. Due to their health attributes, probiotics generate considerable interest in the area of functional
