Why do FUSIONPlex™ assays use RNA instead of DNA as input material?
FUSIONPlex assays use RNA due to the biological relevance for fusions, cost efficiency, and faster turnaround time with this input type. Translocations can occur anywhere in the genome, including introns and other non-coding sequences. They can
also occur within the coding regions of genes with limited expression patterns. Many of the translocations that occur in a cell may not be expressed and thus potentially have little or no biological relevance, so DNA is not the ideal input to interrogate
for oncogenic fusions. Since RNA is the intermediate product of gene expression, it’s ideal for detecting fusions. Detecting fusions with DNA requires more sequencing resources with reduced efficiency and potentially lengthening turnaround time.
