Using different cytogenetic techniques in combination is crucial to studying the high complexity of genetic rearrangements in tumor cells. The 8 clear cell (cc) and 5 papillary (p) renal cell carcinomas (RCC) were analyzed using multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization (multicolor-FISH), conventional Giemsa banding (G-banding) and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) analysis. CGH analysis was carried out with DNA from frozen tissue sections and short-term cultures of primary tumors… CONTINUE READING
