Preparation of cells from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue for use in
fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) experiments.

Weremowicz S, Schofield DE.

Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Numerical and structural chromosome abnormalities can be accurately detected in
cells from archived tissues using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). This
unit describes two common approaches to performing FISH in formalin-fixed,
paraffin-embedded tissue. The first approach utilizes 4 to 6 microm tissue
sections in cases for which preserving tissue morphology is necessary, and the
second involves extraction of intact nuclei from 50 microm tissue sections. To
interpret FISH results using 4 to 6 microm sections, an adequate number of nuclei
must be evaluated to perform statistical analysis. Evaluation of 30 to 50 nuclei
from the single cell suspension generally gives an interpretable result.

In situ hybridization to metaphase chromosomes and interphase nuclei.

Knoll JH, Lichter P.

Children's Mercy Hospital, University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine,
Kansas City, USA.

In situ hybridization is used to determine the chromosomal map location and the
relative order of genes and DNA sequences within a chromosomal band. It can also
be used to detect aneuploidy, gene amplification, and subtle chromosomal
rearrangements. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), probably the most
widely used method, is described in the first basic protocol. Two support
protocols are provided to amplify weak fluorescent signals obtained in FISH.
Nonisotopic probes can also be detected by enzymatic reactions using horseradish
peroxidase or alkaline phosphatase, as described in alternate protocols.
Nonisotopic labeling of DNA probes by nick translation is described in a support
protocol. The order of closely spaced FISH probes along chromosomes in interphase
nuclei can be determined. A basic protocol for isotopic in situ hybridization
(IISH) with (3)H is provided followed by a support protocol for preparation of
autoradiographic emulsion.

Preparation of amniocytes for interphase fluorescence in situ hybridization

Schwartz S, Micale MA, Becker L.

Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Cleveland,
Ohio, USA.

Although FISH has been used to clarify deletions or structural rearrangements,
recent work has focused increasingly on its applications to interphase analysis.
This unit describes preparation of uncultured amniotic fluid cells for FISH
analysis. Cells are swollen, then slides are prepared using either a
cytocentrifuge or standard methods. These are then fixed and permeabilized for
subsequent FISH. An Alternate Protocol describes attachment of amniocytes to a
glass or plastic surface followed by hypotonic swelling, fixation, and
permeabilization for subsequent FISH. Interphase FISH analysis of amniotic fluid
cells is also described.
