Current and capability destiny purposes of recent diagnostic options basedon the direct or oblique detection of melanoma genes are delineated during this quantity. one of the methodological facets lined are enzymatic goal amplification via the polymerase chain response and comparable concepts, DNA fingerprinting, move of putative melanoma genes in acceptable receipient cells, and up to date advancements inthe software of monoclonal antibodies in immunohistochemistry and immunoscintigraphy. The diagnostic and useful implications of mutations in melanoma genes akin to ras and p53 are defined. The characterization of melanoma genes and their items is correlated with progress regulate anddissemination of tumour cells by means of in vitro or medical facts. The contributions within the current quantity uptdate the knowledge on hand on tested or newly defined melanoma genes, and will aid deal with the transition from uncomplicated learn to medical perform.

Therefore fingerprinting may serve to supplement or sometimes even replace karyotype analysis, which is technically difficult in solid tumors and impossible when only frozen tissue is available. In the context of cancer research we have used simple repetitive oligonucleotide probes for various aspects of DNA fingerprinting as first described by Ali et al. ) Molecular Diagnostics of Cancer Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 1993 42 J. T. Epplen et al. general diagnostic intention, such as assessment of tumor homogeneity and progression [10, 19].
The probe (CAC)s or its complement (GTG)s proved especially efficient at revealing randomly distributed, unknown genomic alterations in human tumors. , in most renal tumors investigated [Sa]. A multitude of somatic changes were detected and found to reflect the chromosome alterations identified by parallel karyotype analysis in the gliomas. Gain and/or loss of bands or significant band intensity shifts could be demonstrated in the fingerprints of more than 80% of the intracranial tumors investigated.
