The ACOX1 gene plays a critical role in the metabolism of fatty acids within the peroxisomes, a specialized compartment in the cell. Mutations in the ACOX1 gene can lead to a rare metabolic disorder known as Acyl-CoA Oxidase Deficiency. This condition disrupts the normal breakdown of long-chain fatty acids, leading to a buildup of toxic substances in the body, which can result in severe neurological and developmental issues.

To diagnose this condition, a genetic test targeting the ACOX1 gene can be conducted. DNA Labs UAE offers this specific test, providing a reliable means of diagnosing Acyl-CoA Oxidase Deficiency. The test involves analyzing the patient’s DNA to identify mutations in the ACOX1 gene that are indicative of the disorder.

The cost of the ACOX1 Gene Acyl-CoA Peroxisomal Oxidase Deficiency Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This price reflects the specialized nature of the test, the advanced technology used in the analysis, and the professional expertise required to interpret the results accurately. Once the test is conducted, healthcare providers can use the results to confirm a diagnosis, which is crucial for developing an effective treatment plan and managing the condition.

ACOX1 Gene Acyl-CoA Peroxisomal Oxidase Deficiency Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the ACOX1 Gene Acyl-CoA peroxisomal oxidase deficiency genetic test. This test helps in the diagnosis and management of a rare metabolic disorder characterized by the accumulation of fatty acids in the body, particularly in the liver and brain.

Test Details

The ACOX1 gene encodes for acyl-CoA oxidase 1, an enzyme involved in the breakdown of fatty acids in peroxisomes. Deficiency in this enzyme can lead to acyl-CoA peroxisomal oxidase deficiency. To identify mutations in the ACOX1 gene that may cause this disorder, we utilize NGS (next-generation sequencing) technology. This type of testing allows for the analysis of multiple genes simultaneously, providing a more comprehensive assessment of genetic variations that may contribute to the development of the disease.

Doctor and Test Department

The test will be conducted by a Neurologist in our Genetics department.

Pre Test Information

Prior to the test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient who is going for the ACOX1 Gene Acyl-CoA peroxisomal oxidase deficiency NGS Genetic DNA Test. Additionally, a Genetic Counselling session will be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with this disorder.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Individuals with acyl-CoA peroxisomal oxidase deficiency may experience symptoms such as liver and neurological damage. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to prevent long-term complications. Genetic testing can help identify individuals who may be at risk for this disorder, allowing for early intervention and management.

Conclusion

The ACOX1 Gene Acyl-CoA peroxisomal oxidase deficiency genetic test offered by DNA Labs UAE provides a comprehensive assessment of genetic variations that may contribute to the development of this rare metabolic disorder. Early diagnosis and management are essential in preventing long-term complications. If you suspect that you or a family member may be at risk, consider getting tested today.
