The “CAV3 Gene Creatine Phosphokinase Elevated Serum Genetic Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, aimed at identifying mutations in the CAV3 gene, which can lead to elevated levels of creatine phosphokinase (CPK) in the serum. This enzyme is crucial for energy production in muscle cells, and its elevated levels can indicate muscle damage or certain genetic conditions, such as muscular dystrophies. The test, priced at 4400 AED, involves analyzing the patient’s DNA to detect any genetic variations in the CAV3 gene that might contribute to the abnormal enzyme levels. This information can be invaluable for diagnosing underlying conditions, guiding treatment decisions, and assessing the risk of passing the condition to future generations.

CAV3 Gene Creatine phosphokinase elevated serum Genetic Test

Welcome to DNA Labs UAE, a leading genetic laboratory specializing in advanced genetic testing. In this blog post, we will discuss the CAV3 Gene Creatine phosphokinase elevated serum Genetic Test and its importance in diagnosing neurological disorders.

Test Details

The CAV3 gene encodes for the protein caveolin-3, which plays a crucial role in the formation of caveolae – small invaginations in the plasma membrane involved in cell signaling and lipid metabolism. Mutations in the CAV3 gene have been linked to a rare form of muscular dystrophy known as limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 1C (LGMD1C). LGMD1C is characterized by progressive muscle weakness and wasting.

Creatine phosphokinase (CPK) is an enzyme found in skeletal muscle, heart muscle, and brain tissue. Elevated serum levels of CPK can indicate muscle damage or disease. Therefore, an elevated serum CPK level, along with NGS genetic testing for mutations in the CAV3 gene, can be used to diagnose LGMD1C.

Pre Test Information

Prior to undergoing the CAV3 Gene Creatine phosphokinase elevated serum Genetic Test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient. Additionally, a genetic counseling session may be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by CAV3 Gene Creatine phosphokinase elevated serum.

Genetic counseling is an essential step in understanding the inheritance pattern and potential risks associated with LGMD1C. It helps in identifying affected family members, providing support, and guiding future treatment options.

Conclusion

The CAV3 Gene Creatine phosphokinase elevated serum Genetic Test offered by DNA Labs UAE is a valuable tool in the diagnosis of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 1C (LGMD1C). By analyzing the CAV3 gene and measuring serum CPK levels, our advanced NGS technology can identify genetic variations and mutations associated with LGMD1C. This test, performed under the supervision of our expert neurologists, can provide crucial insights into the patient’s condition, enabling appropriate treatment and management strategies.

Test Details

The CAV3 gene encodes for the protein caveolin-3, which is involved in the formation of caveolae, small invaginations in the plasma membrane that are involved in cell signaling and lipid metabolism. Mutations in the CAV3 gene have been linked to a rare form of muscular dystrophy called limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 1C (LGMD1C), which is characterized by progressive muscle weakness and wasting.

Creatine phosphokinase (CPK) is an enzyme found in skeletal muscle, heart muscle, and brain tissue. Elevated serum levels of CPK can indicate muscle damage or disease.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing is a type of genetic testing that uses advanced technology to rapidly sequence large amounts of DNA. This allows for the detection of genetic variations, including mutations in the CAV3 gene that may be associated with LGMD1C.

Therefore, an elevated serum CPK level and NGS genetic testing for mutations in the CAV3 gene may be used to diagnose LGMD1C.
