The GLB1 gene GM1-gangliosidosis genetic test is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at detecting mutations in the GLB1 gene, which are responsible for GM1-gangliosidosis. GM1-gangliosidosis is a rare inherited disorder that affects the brain and other organs, leading to severe neurological impairment. The condition is categorized into three types, varying in severity and age of onset, from infancy to adulthood.

The test involves collecting a DNA sample, usually through a blood draw or cheek swab, which is then analyzed in a laboratory to identify any genetic abnormalities in the GLB1 gene. This gene encodes the enzyme beta-galactosidase, essential for the breakdown of GM1 gangliosides. Mutations in this gene lead to the accumulation of GM1 gangliosides in tissues, causing the symptoms associated with GM1-gangliosidosis.

At DNA Labs UAE, the GLB1 gene GM1-gangliosidosis genetic test is available for individuals who may be at risk of this condition, either due to family history or clinical symptoms suggestive of the disease. The test is priced at 4400 AED and is conducted with the utmost confidentiality and accuracy, providing crucial information for diagnosis, management, and genetic counseling of affected individuals and their families.

GLB1 Gene GM1-gangliosidosis Genetic Test

Cost: 4400.0 AED

Introduction

GM1 gangliosidosis is a rare genetic disorder caused by a deficiency in the enzyme beta-galactosidase, which is produced by the GLB1 gene. This deficiency leads to the accumulation of GM1 ganglioside, a type of fat molecule, in the body. DNA Labs UAE offers a comprehensive genetic test to diagnose GM1 gangliosidosis and identify carriers of the genetic mutation.

Test Components

  • NGS Technology
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Genetics

Sample Condition

The test can be performed on blood or extracted DNA. Alternatively, a single drop of blood can be collected on an FTA Card for analysis.

Report Delivery

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

Method

The GLB1 gene GM1-gangliosidosis genetic test utilizes NGS technology to analyze the GLB1 gene and identify any mutations or variations that may be causing GM1 gangliosidosis.

Test Type

The test is specifically designed to diagnose neurological disorders, including GM1 gangliosidosis.

Doctor

The test is conducted under the supervision of a neurologist.

Pre Test Information

Prior to the test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient who is undergoing the GLB1 gene GM1-gangliosidosis NGS genetic DNA test. Additionally, a genetic counseling session is recommended to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by GM1 gangliosidosis.

Test Details

The GLB1 gene is responsible for producing the beta-galactosidase enzyme, which is crucial for breaking down GM1 ganglioside. When there is a deficiency in beta-galactosidase, GM1 ganglioside accumulates in the body, leading to GM1 gangliosidosis. NGS genetic testing is an effective method to analyze the GLB1 gene and identify any mutations or variations that may be causing the disorder. This test can diagnose individuals showing symptoms of GM1 gangliosidosis and identify carriers of the genetic mutation. Early diagnosis is essential for managing symptoms and providing appropriate care and support. Furthermore, NGS genetic testing is valuable for genetic counseling and family planning purposes.

Test Details

The GLB1 gene is responsible for producing an enzyme called beta-galactosidase, which is necessary for breaking down a type of fat molecule called GM1 ganglioside. GM1 gangliosidosis is a rare genetic disorder that occurs when there is a deficiency in beta-galactosidase, leading to the accumulation of GM1 ganglioside in the body.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing can be used to analyze the GLB1 gene and identify any mutations or variations that may be causing GM1 gangliosidosis. This type of testing can be used to diagnose the condition in individuals who are showing symptoms, as well as identify carriers of the genetic mutation who may pass it on to their children.

Early diagnosis of GM1 gangliosidosis is important for managing symptoms and providing appropriate care and support to affected individuals. NGS genetic testing can also be useful for genetic counseling and family planning purposes.
