ViroGene FLT3


FLT3 (fms-related tyrosine kinase 3) gene frequently mutated in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is associated with disease pathogenesis. Interna tandem duplications in juxtamembran region of cytoplasmic domain of FLT3 gene is observed in 17-34% of leukemic blast cells of AML patients. ViroGene kit is specifically designed to detect those duplications and also can be used detect point mutations (D835/I836) observed in 7% of AML patients.
