gb ONCO JAK2 (V617F)
quantitative real-time PCR
This in vitro diagnostic kit is used for detection and quantification of somatic mutation V617F JAK2 gene in human genomic DNA. The detection principle is based on real-time PCR using fluorescently labeled probes and allele specific primers.
Clinical implications of the IVD kit
The JAK2 enzyme is involved in the signaling pathway leading to blood cell production. Substitution of the amino acid valine for phenylalanine at position 617 leads to uncontrolled cell proliferation and survival of hematopoietic precursors. Somatic mutation occurs in most patients with with diseases such as essential thrombocythemia and chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis.
A higher risk of complications (thrombosis, abortion, etc.) is generally expected in carriers of this mutation.
