|Investigation||:||MYD88 L265P mutation test|
|Specimen type||:||Bone marrow|
|Volume required||:||3 ml|
A hot spot mutation (L265P (CTG > CCG)) in MYD88 gene exists in >90% of lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma (LPL) and at a much less frequency in some other lymphomas. This molecular biology test detects this mutation at DNA level, with a limit of detection of 1% alleles.
