Quantum dots were proposed as new fluorochromes for use in fluorescence in-situ hybridization. EBV-encoded small RNA, the most abundant viral product in latently infected cells, was detected by quantum dot fluorescence in-situ hybridization in paraffin-embedded tissue sections of gastric carcinoma. An indirect FISH approach using quantum dots streptavidin conjugates as secondary reporters and digoxigenin labeled EBV-encoded small RNA oligonucleotide probes as detectable molecules was employed. Quantum dot fluorescence in-situ hybridization offered a slightly higher sensitivity in detecting EBV-encoded small RNA in gastric carcinoma than chromogenic in-situ hybridization. Statistical analyses showed that the detected EBV-associated gastric carcinoma was not associated with any clinicopathological parameters of the Chinese gastric carcinoma patients investigated in this study.
