The GJB1 Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at identifying mutations in the GJB1 gene, which are associated with Dejerine-Sottas Disease (DSD), also known as hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy type III. This condition is characterized by progressive nerve damage leading to muscle weakness, decreased sensation, and other neurological symptoms. The test is crucial for confirming the diagnosis, understanding the disease’s progression, and guiding treatment decisions.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a reputable facility known for its advanced genetic testing capabilities, the test involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw or cheek swab. The laboratory then analyzes the GJB1 gene for specific mutations that contribute to the development of Dejerine-Sottas Disease.

The cost of the GJB1 Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This price may cover the genetic analysis, professional interpretation of results, and post-test counseling to discuss the findings and their implications. Patients considering this test should consult with their healthcare provider to understand its benefits, potential limitations, and how the results might influence their treatment plan.

Test Details

Dejerine-Sottas Disease (DSD) is a rare genetic disorder that affects the peripheral nerves, causing muscle weakness and sensory loss. It is caused by mutations in the GJB1 gene, which provides instructions for making a protein called connexin 32. This protein is important for the formation and maintenance of myelin, the fatty substance that covers and protects nerve fibers.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing can be used to identify mutations in the GJB1 gene that cause DSD. This type of testing uses advanced technology to sequence large amounts of DNA quickly and accurately, allowing for the detection of even small changes in the genetic code. NGS testing can help diagnose DSD and identify carriers of the condition. It can also provide valuable information for family planning and genetic counseling.

Treatment for DSD is primarily supportive and focused on managing symptoms, but early diagnosis through genetic testing can help improve outcomes and quality of life for individuals with the condition.
