The FLNA Gene Heterotopia Periventricular X-Linked Dominant Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic assessment designed to identify mutations in the FLNA gene, which are associated with X-linked periventricular heterotopia (PVNH). This condition is characterized by the abnormal localization of neurons in the brain, leading to a range of neurological symptoms, including epilepsy, developmental delays, and sometimes, issues with coordination and muscle tone. Given the X-linked dominant inheritance pattern, mutations in the FLNA gene can significantly impact both males and females, though the severity and presentation can vary widely.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a facility known for its state-of-the-art genetic testing services, this test aims to provide crucial information for the diagnosis and management of individuals suspected of having PVNH. The process involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw, which is then analyzed for specific mutations in the FLNA gene that are indicative of the disorder.

The cost of the FLNA Gene Heterotopia Periventricular X-Linked Dominant Genetic Test is 4400 AED. This price reflects the comprehensive nature of the test, encompassing the sophisticated techniques used to detect gene mutations, as well as the expertise required to interpret the results accurately. For families affected by neurological conditions or for individuals showing symptoms related to PVNH, this test offers a valuable tool for understanding the genetic basis of the condition and guiding treatment and management decisions.

FLNA Gene Heterotopia periventricular X-linked dominant Genetic Test

Genetic testing plays a crucial role in identifying and understanding various genetic disorders. One such disorder is FLNA Gene Heterotopia periventricular, which is characterized by abnormal migration of neurons during brain development. This disorder is inherited in an X-linked dominant manner.

Test Components

  • Price: 4400.0 AED

Sample Condition

The test requires a blood sample or extracted DNA. Alternatively, one drop of blood can be collected on an FTA Card.

Report Delivery

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

Method

The FLNA Gene Heterotopia periventricular X-linked dominant Genetic Test utilizes NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) technology.

Test Type

This genetic test is specifically designed to diagnose neurological disorders.

Doctor

It is recommended to consult with a Neurologist for this test.

Test Department

The FLNA Gene Heterotopia periventricular X-linked dominant Genetic Test is conducted in the Genetics department.

Pre Test Information

Prior to the test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient who is undergoing the FLNA Gene Heterotopia periventricular X-linked dominant NGS Genetic DNA Test. Additionally, a Genetic Counselling session is conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by FLNA Gene Heterotopia, periventricular, X-linked dominant.

Test Details

The FLNA gene is associated with periventricular heterotopia, a condition characterized by abnormal neuron migration during brain development. Inheritance of this condition follows an X-linked dominant pattern, meaning that a mutation in one copy of the FLNA gene on the X chromosome is sufficient to cause the disorder.

NGS genetic testing, also known as Next-Generation Sequencing, is a powerful genetic testing method that allows for the simultaneous analysis of multiple genes. In the context of FLNA gene heterotopia, NGS genetic testing can identify mutations or variants in the FLNA gene that may be responsible for the condition. This type of testing provides valuable information for diagnosis, genetic counseling, and potential treatment options.

Test Details

The FLNA gene is associated with a condition called periventricular heterotopia, which is a disorder characterized by abnormal migration of neurons during brain development. This condition is inherited in an X-linked dominant manner, which means that a mutation in one copy of the FLNA gene on the X chromosome is sufficient to cause the disorder.

NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) genetic testing is a type of genetic test that uses advanced sequencing technology to analyze multiple genes simultaneously. In the context of FLNA gene heterotopia, NGS genetic testing can be used to identify mutations or variants in the FLNA gene that may be responsible for the condition. This type of testing can provide valuable information for diagnosis, genetic counseling, and potential treatment options.
