The HCN2 gene, also known as the hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated potassium channel 2, plays a significant role in the electrical activity of the heart and brain. Mutations in this gene have been linked to various neurological conditions, including certain forms of epilepsy. Epilepsy associated with the HCN2 gene involves a spectrum of seizure disorders, which can vary in severity and response to treatment.

To aid in the diagnosis and management of epilepsy potentially linked to the HCN2 gene, DNA Labs UAE offers a specialized genetic test. This test is designed to identify mutations in the HCN2 gene that may contribute to the development of epilepsy. By pinpointing the specific genetic alterations, healthcare providers can gain valuable insights into the condition, allowing for a more personalized approach to treatment and management.

The test is conducted with a sample of the patient’s DNA, typically collected through a blood draw or a cheek swab. The sample is then analyzed in the laboratory using advanced genetic sequencing techniques to detect any mutations in the HCN2 gene.

The cost of the HCN2 related genetic test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This investment can be pivotal for individuals and families seeking answers to unexplained seizure disorders, as it not only provides a clearer diagnosis but also opens the door to targeted treatment options and a better understanding of the condition’s prognosis.

HCN2 Gene Epilepsy Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the HCN2 Gene Epilepsy Genetic Test to help diagnose and guide treatment decisions for individuals suspected to have a genetic form of epilepsy. This test analyzes the HCN2 gene and other genes associated with epilepsy using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology.

Test Details

The HCN2 gene codes for a protein called hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channel 2. This protein plays a role in regulating electrical activity in neurons, including those in the brain. Mutations in the HCN2 gene have been linked to a specific type of epilepsy called generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus (GEFS+).

Test Components and Price

The HCN2 Gene Epilepsy Genetic Test costs 4400.0 AED. The test can be performed using blood or extracted DNA samples, or with one drop of blood on an FTA card. The report delivery typically takes 3 to 4 weeks.

Test Method

The HCN2 Gene Epilepsy Genetic Test utilizes NGS technology to analyze multiple genes simultaneously. This advanced sequencing method allows for a comprehensive examination of genetic variations associated with neurological disorders.

Referring Doctor and Test Department

Our HCN2 Gene Epilepsy Genetic Test is recommended by neurologists, who specialize in diagnosing and treating neurological disorders. The test is conducted in our Genetics department, where our team of experts ensures accurate and reliable results.

Pre Test Information

Prior to the HCN2 Gene Epilepsy Genetic Test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient who is undergoing the test. Additionally, a genetic counseling session may be conducted to create a pedigree chart of family members affected by HCN2 Gene Epilepsy or related conditions.

Implications and Considerations

It is crucial to understand that while genetic testing can provide valuable information, it does not guarantee disease development or progression. Our genetic counselors are available to help individuals and families interpret the test results and make informed decisions about their healthcare.

If you suspect a genetic form of epilepsy or have a family history of HCN2 Gene Epilepsy, we recommend considering the HCN2 Gene Epilepsy Genetic Test. Contact DNA Labs UAE to schedule an appointment or to learn more about our services.

NGS genetic testing is a type of genetic testing that uses next-generation sequencing technology to analyze multiple genes simultaneously. NGS genetic testing can be used to identify mutations in the HCN2 gene and other genes that may be associated with epilepsy.

If a person is suspected to have a genetic form of epilepsy, their healthcare provider may recommend NGS genetic testing to help diagnose the condition and guide treatment decisions. Testing may also be recommended for family members of individuals with known HCN2 mutations to identify those who may be at risk for developing epilepsy.

It is important to note that while genetic testing can provide valuable information, it is not a guarantee of disease development or progression. A genetic counselor can help individuals and families understand the implications of genetic testing results and make informed decisions about their healthcare.
