Co-localization of HER2 and CEP17 signals. (A) Co-localization of HER2 and CEP17 signals is represented in this figure by a yellow fusion signal. This differs from the independent (B) HER2 and (C) CEP17 signals. Reproduced with permission from Starczynski et al . are few cases of gene co-amplification, the Mansfield dual ISH model utilizes an alternative noncentromeric CEP (D17S122 locus [17p12]) in conjunction with the HER2 probe to provide a way of determining if coamplification is due to specific pericentromeric extension of HER2 and not polysomy of chromosome 17 .
