The DYSF Gene Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Autosomal Recessive Type 2B Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify mutations in the DYSF gene. This gene is crucial for the proper functioning of muscles, and mutations can lead to Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2B (LGMD2B), a condition characterized by progressive weakness and wasting of the limb-girdle muscles, which are those around the hips and shoulders. LGMD2B is an autosomal recessive disorder, meaning that an individual must inherit two copies of the mutated gene, one from each parent, to be affected.

The test involves analyzing the patient’s DNA, usually extracted from a blood sample, to detect any abnormalities in the DYSF gene. This genetic testing is essential for confirming the diagnosis of LGMD2B, understanding the risk of passing the disorder to future generations, and making informed decisions about management and treatment options.

The cost of the DYSF Gene Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Autosomal Recessive Type 2B Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This investment covers the comprehensive analysis required to identify the specific mutations in the DYSF gene that are responsible for the condition. Early diagnosis through this test can be crucial for the timely initiation of supportive therapies and interventions to manage symptoms and improve the quality of life for affected individuals.

DYSF Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2B Genetic Test

Overview

The DYSF gene is associated with Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal recessive type 2B (LGMD2B), a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle weakness and wasting primarily affecting the muscles of the shoulders and hips.

Test Details

The DYSF Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2B Genetic Test is a Neurological Disorders genetic test offered by DNA Labs UAE. The test utilizes NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) technology to analyze multiple genes simultaneously.

Components and Price

  • Test Name: DYSF Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2B Genetic Test
  • Price: 4400.0 AED

Sample Condition

The test requires either a blood sample, extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA card.

Report Delivery

The test results are typically delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Method

The test utilizes NGS technology for analysis.

Test Type

The test is specifically designed for Neurological Disorders.

Doctor and Test Department

The test is conducted by a Neurologist and falls under the Genetics department.

Pre Test Information

Prior to the test, a clinical history of the patient is required. Additionally, a Genetic Counselling session is conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with DYSF Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal recessive type 2B.

Understanding NGS Genetic Testing for LGMD2B

NGS genetic testing is a comprehensive method that allows for the identification of mutations or variations in the DYSF gene associated with LGMD2B. The test involves obtaining a DNA sample, usually through a blood or saliva sample, from the individual being tested. The DNA is then sequenced using NGS technology to identify any variations or mutations in the DYSF gene. This information can help confirm a diagnosis of LGMD2B and provide details about the specific genetic variant causing the condition.

Carrier Testing

NGS genetic testing can also be used for carrier testing. Carrier testing identifies individuals who carry one copy of a gene mutation associated with a genetic disorder. This can be particularly useful for individuals with a family history of LGMD2B who want to determine if they are at risk of passing the condition on to their children.

Important Note

It’s important to note that NGS genetic testing is a complex process that requires specialized laboratory facilities and expertise. The results of the test should be interpreted by a healthcare professional or genetic counselor who can provide appropriate guidance and counseling based on the individual’s specific situation.

Test Details

The DYSF gene is associated with Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal recessive type 2B (LGMD2B), which is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle weakness and wasting primarily affecting the muscles of the shoulders and hips.

NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) genetic testing refers to a type of genetic testing that uses advanced sequencing technology to analyze multiple genes simultaneously. In the case of LGMD2B, NGS genetic testing can be used to identify mutations or variations in the DYSF gene that are associated with the condition.

NGS genetic testing for LGMD2B typically involves obtaining a DNA sample, usually through a blood sample or saliva sample, from the individual being tested. The DNA is then sequenced using NGS technology to identify any variations or mutations in the DYSF gene. This can help in confirming a diagnosis of LGMD2B and providing information about the specific genetic variant causing the condition.

NGS genetic testing can also be used for carrier testing, which is the identification of individuals who carry one copy of a gene mutation associated with a genetic disorder. This can be useful for individuals who have a family history of LGMD2B and want to know if they are at risk of passing the condition on to their children.

It’s important to note that NGS genetic testing is a complex process that requires specialized laboratory facilities and expertise. The results of the test should be interpreted by a healthcare professional or genetic counselor who can provide appropriate guidance and counseling based on the individual’s specific situation.
