The C10ORF11 gene plays a critical role in the development of oculocutaneous albinism type 5 (OCA5), a rare genetic condition characterized by reduced pigmentation in the hair, skin, and eyes, and often accompanied by vision problems. OCA5 is a result of mutations in the C10ORF11 gene, which is involved in the biological pathways that produce melanin, the pigment responsible for color in these tissues.

DNA Labs UAE offers a specialized genetic test designed to identify mutations in the C10ORF11 gene, providing a definitive diagnosis for individuals suspected of having oculocutaneous albinism type 5. This test is crucial for early detection and management of the condition, which can help in addressing the vision problems and skin sensitivity to sunlight associated with OCA5.

The cost of the C10ORF11 gene albinism oculocutaneous type 5 genetic test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This investment covers the comprehensive analysis required to detect the specific genetic alterations within the C10ORF11 gene that lead to the development of OCA5. By confirming the diagnosis, affected individuals and their families can gain a better understanding of the condition, leading to informed decisions about care and management.

Pre Test Information

Prior to undergoing the C10ORF11 Gene Albinism oculocutaneous type 5 Genetic Test, it is important to provide the following:

  • Clinical History of the patient
  • A Genetic Counselling session to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with C10ORF11 Gene Albinism, oculocutaneous type 5 NGS Genetic DNA Test gene C10ORF11

Test Details

The C10ORF11 gene is associated with oculocutaneous albinism type 5 (OCA5), a rare genetic condition. OCA5 affects the eyes, skin, and hair, and is caused by mutations in the C10ORF11 gene. This gene provides instructions for producing a protein involved in melanin production, the pigment responsible for skin, hair, and eye color. The NGS genetic testing method is used to identify mutations in the C10ORF11 gene that cause OCA5. By sequencing the entire gene, this test can detect any changes or variations present. This helps diagnose OCA5 in individuals with symptoms such as light-colored skin, hair, and eyes, as well as reduced visual acuity. Additionally, genetic testing can identify carriers of the C10ORF11 gene mutation, providing valuable information for family planning and genetic counseling. While there is no cure for OCA5, treatment primarily focuses on symptom management, such as using sunscreen for sun protection and wearing corrective glasses or contact lenses for vision problems.

Test Details

The C10ORF11 gene is associated with a rare genetic condition called oculocutaneous albinism type 5 (OCA5). OCA5 is a form of albinism that affects the eyes, skin, and hair. It is caused by mutations in the C10ORF11 gene, which provides instructions for making a protein that is involved in the production of melanin, the pigment that gives color to the skin, hair, and eyes.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing can detect mutations in the C10ORF11 gene that cause OCA5. This test involves sequencing the entire gene to identify any changes or variations that may be present. This can help diagnose OCA5 in individuals with symptoms of the condition, such as light-colored skin, hair, and eyes, and reduced visual acuity.

Genetic testing can also be used to identify carriers of the C10ORF11 gene mutation, which can help with family planning and genetic counseling. Treatment for OCA5 is primarily focused on managing symptoms, such as using sunscreen to protect the skin from sun damage and wearing glasses or contact lenses to correct vision problems.
