About this work

Description

Human chromosomes highlighted by fluorescent probes which bind to specific sequences of DNA. This FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridisation) study is of a petient with a sub-microscopic deletion in chromosome 11 (11p13) which includes those tegions spanning the WAGR (Wilm's tumour, airidia, genital anomalies and mental retardation) region. The four chromosome sets shown have a green probe for the chromosome 11 centromere, and red probes for various parts of the WAGR, which are absent in one of the two chromosome 11s in each case.
