The CACNA1B gene DYT23 genetic test is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at identifying mutations in the CACNA1B gene, which have been associated with DYT23, a specific form of dystonia. Dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions, leading to repetitive movements or abnormal postures. The CACNA1B gene plays a crucial role in encoding the alpha-1B subunit of a type of voltage-dependent calcium channel, which is essential for the proper functioning of nerve cells. Mutations in this gene can disrupt normal neuronal communication, leading to the symptoms observed in DYT23 dystonia.

This genetic test is particularly important for individuals showing symptoms of dystonia without a clear cause, as it can provide a definitive diagnosis of DYT23, allowing for more targeted and effective treatment plans. The test involves collecting a DNA sample, usually through a blood draw or a cheek swab, which is then analyzed in the laboratory for the presence of mutations in the CACNA1B gene.

The CACNA1B gene DYT23 genetic test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading provider of genetic testing services in the United Arab Emirates. The cost of the test is 4400 AED, reflecting the specialized nature of the analysis and the expertise required to interpret the results accurately. By opting for this test at DNA Labs UAE, patients can expect reliable results, comprehensive support, and guidance on the implications of the test outcomes for their health and treatment options.

Test Details

The CACNA1B gene is a gene that codes for a protein that is involved in the regulation of calcium ion channels in the brain. Mutations in this gene have been associated with a rare form of dystonia called DYT23.


NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) genetic testing is a method of genetic testing that allows for the simultaneous analysis of multiple genes in a single test. It is a powerful tool for identifying genetic mutations associated with rare diseases like DYT23.


The CACNA1B gene DYT23 NGS genetic test is a specific genetic test that looks for mutations in the CACNA1B gene associated with DYT23 using NGS technology. This test can help diagnose individuals with DYT23 and provide valuable information for their medical management and treatment.
