Synovial Sarcoma Microvesicles Harbor the SYT-SSX Fusion Gene Transcript: Comparison of Different Methods of Detection and Implications in Biomarker Research

Figure 6

Analysis of the presence of the SYT-SSX fusion gene in whole blood, the mononuclear cell fraction, and serum microvesicles of synovial sarcoma patients by nested qPCR (a) and qPCR (b). Synovial sarcoma cells: positive control. Negative controls showed positivity at Ct-cycles ≥ 39. Patient samples showed Ct-cycles > 39 and were thus interpreted as negative.
