The GJC2 gene plays a crucial role in the central nervous system’s development and function, specifically in the formation and maintenance of myelin sheaths that insulate nerve fibers. Mutations in the GJC2 gene are linked to a form of leukodystrophy known as hypomyelinating leukodystrophy, which is characterized by insufficient formation of myelin in the brain. This condition leads to a range of neurological symptoms, including motor and cognitive developmental delays, muscle stiffness, and difficulty with coordination and balance.

To diagnose this genetic condition, a specific genetic test is available that analyzes the GJC2 gene for mutations associated with hypomyelinating leukodystrophy. This test is crucial for confirming the diagnosis, understanding the disease’s progression, and guiding treatment and management decisions for affected individuals.

In the United Arab Emirates, this genetic test is offered by DNA Labs UAE, a reputable facility known for its advanced genetic testing services. The cost of the GJC2 gene leukodystrophy hypomyelinating genetic test is 4400 AED. This test is a valuable tool for families and healthcare providers in diagnosing and managing this rare genetic condition, ensuring that individuals receive the most appropriate care and support based on their genetic makeup.

GJC2 Gene Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating Genetic Test

Introduction

The GJC2 gene is associated with a rare genetic disorder called Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating. Leukodystrophies are a group of disorders characterized by abnormal development or degeneration of the white matter in the brain, which affects the formation of myelin, the protective covering of nerve fibers.

Test Details

The GJC2 Gene Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating Genetic Test is a neurology-based genetic test offered by DNA Labs UAE. The test uses NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) technology, which allows for the simultaneous sequencing of multiple genes or even the entire exome (all the protein-coding regions of genes) in a single test.

Components and Price

The cost of the GJC2 Gene Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating Genetic Test is AED 4400.0. The test can be performed on a blood sample, extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA Card.

Report Delivery

The report for the GJC2 Gene Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating Genetic Test is typically delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Test Type and Department

The GJC2 Gene Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating Genetic Test falls under the category of neurological disorders and is conducted by the Genetics department of DNA Labs UAE.

Pre Test Information

Before undergoing the GJC2 Gene Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating 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 Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating.

Doctor and Method

The GJC2 Gene Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating Genetic Test is performed by a Neurologist using NGS technology.

Benefits of the Test

The GJC2 Gene Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating Genetic Test helps in confirming a diagnosis of Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating by identifying specific genetic variations in the GJC2 gene. It also provides important information for genetic counseling, family planning, and can potentially guide treatment decisions or participation in clinical trials.

NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) is a genetic testing technique that allows for the simultaneous sequencing of multiple genes or even the entire exome (all the protein-coding regions of genes) in a single test. In the context of Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating, NGS genetic testing can be used to analyze the GJC2 gene for mutations or variations that may be responsible for the disease.

By identifying specific genetic variations in the GJC2 gene, NGS testing can help in confirming a diagnosis of Leukodystrophy hypomyelinating. It can also provide important information for genetic counseling and family planning, as well as potentially guide treatment decisions or participation in clinical trials.
