- Detection of SYT-SSX fusion transcripts in archival synovial sarcomas by real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reactionKaren E Bijwaard
Division of Molecular Pathology, the Department of Cellular Pathology and Genetics, Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, Washington, DC, USA
J Mol Diagn 4:59-64. 2002..All 13 non-synovial sarcomas tested were negative for SYT-SSX1 and SYT-SSX2 fusion transcripts. This method is a relatively simple and rapid procedure for the detection of the t(X;18)(p11.2;q11.2)...
