From: Co-incidental increase in gene copy number of ERBB2 and LRIG1 in breast cancer

Figure 1

Increased copy number of LRIG1 and ERBB2 in human breast cancer in the same patient. Interphase nuclei from a breast cancer tumour were analysed by FISH. (a) A specific LRIG1 probe (red) showed increased LRIG1 copy number (five copies) whereas a specific centromere probe (CEP3) (green) showed normal chromosome 3 copy number (two copies). (b) A specific ERBB2 probe (red) showed amplification of the ERBB2 gene whereas a specific centromere probe (CEP17; green) showed three copies of chromosomes 17.
