AARS1 Gene CMT2N Genetic Test
Are you or your loved ones experiencing muscle weakness and atrophy? It could be a sign of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2N (CMT2N), a rare genetic disorder affecting the peripheral nerves. DNA Labs UAE offers the AARS1 Gene CMT2N Genetic Test, a diagnostic test using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to analyze the AARS1 gene and detect any mutations causing CMT2N.
The AARS1 gene is responsible for encoding the alanyl-tRNA synthetase enzyme, which plays a crucial role in protein synthesis. Mutations in this gene have been linked to CMT2N. The CMT2N NGS genetic test is designed to identify these mutations and aid in the diagnosis of individuals showing symptoms of CMT2N or those with a family history of the condition.
Test Components and Price
The AARS1 Gene CMT2N Genetic Test costs AED 4400.0. The test requires a blood sample, and the results are typically delivered within 3 to 4 weeks. The test utilizes NGS technology, which allows for a comprehensive analysis of the AARS1 gene.
Before undergoing the AARS1 Gene CMT2N Genetic Test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient. Additionally, a genetic counseling session may be recommended to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by CMT2N. This information helps in the accurate interpretation of the test results.
Benefits and Considerations
The AARS1 Gene CMT2N Genetic Test can provide valuable insights into the diagnosis of CMT2N. However, it is essential to understand that genetic testing can have ethical, legal, and social implications. It is advisable to consult with a genetic counselor or healthcare provider to discuss the potential risks and benefits associated with genetic testing.
