Detection method: reverse transcription + real-time PCR

Kit is intended for prognosis assessment in CLL patients by analysis of cDNA (reverse transcribed RNA) samples of human B lymphocytes obtained from peripheral blood. The kit is based on reverse transcription together with quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) using fluorescently labelled probes.

Clinical implications

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) occurs mostly in elderly people (median age 65 years) and is the most common leukemia in Europe and North America where CLL comprises of about 30 % of leukemic diseases of adults. The frequency of CLL is approximately two-times higher in men than in women. IGHV mutational status analysis helps to better predict disease progression and patient survival.

Somatic hypermutation of IGHV is the physiological process that leads to an increase in antibody diversity. In patients with mutated IGHV, better prognosis with a slower progression of disease and a longer patient´s survival can be observed. In those with unmutated IGHV a worse clinical course and prognosis can be expected.The kit contains all components necessary for analysis of gene expression. Two of six genes are housekeeping genes (B2M, HPRT1) and three of them are target genes (LPL, ZAP70 and COBLL1). The remaining gene CD3D serves as contamination marker (sample contamination by T lymphocytes).

gb Easy PCR Master Mix consists of hot-start Taq DNA polymerase, reaction buffer, dNTP and MgCl2. 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.
