The HPCA Gene DYT2 Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic tool offered by DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify mutations in the HPCA gene, which are associated with DYT2 early-onset dystonia. DYT2 dystonia is a rare genetic disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions leading to abnormal postures and movements, typically manifesting in childhood or adolescence. This test plays a crucial role in confirming the diagnosis of DYT2 dystonia, enabling healthcare professionals to tailor treatment plans more effectively for affected individuals.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic diagnostics, the test involves collecting a DNA sample from the patient, usually through a blood draw or cheek swab. The sample is then analyzed using advanced genetic sequencing technologies to detect any mutations in the HPCA gene. The accuracy and reliability of the results make it a valuable resource for families seeking answers about this challenging condition.

The cost of the HPCA Gene DYT2 Genetic Test is 4400 AED, reflecting the sophisticated technology and expertise required to perform this analysis. Despite the cost, the test represents a significant step forward for individuals and families affected by DYT2 dystonia, offering hope for better management and understanding of the disorder.

HPCA Gene DYT2 Genetic Test – DNA Labs UAE

Test Details

The HPCA gene, also known as DYT2, is associated with a rare genetic movement disorder called dystonia. Dystonia is a neurological condition characterized by involuntary muscle contractions that cause repetitive movements or abnormal postures. NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing is a type of genetic test that uses advanced sequencing technology to analyze multiple genes simultaneously. NGS testing can identify mutations in the HPCA gene and other genes associated with dystonia. This type of testing is particularly useful for identifying rare genetic disorders like DYT2, which may be missed by traditional genetic testing methods.

Test Name: HPCA Gene DYT2 Genetic Test

  • Components: NGS Technology
  • Price: 4400.0 AED
  • Sample Condition: Blood or Extracted DNA or One drop Blood on FTA Card
  • Report Delivery: 3 to 4 Weeks
  • Test Type: Neurological Disorders
  • Doctor: Neurologist
  • Test Department: Genetics
  • Pre Test Information: Clinical History of Patient who is going for HPCA Gene DYT2 NGS Genetic DNA Test. A Genetic Counselling session to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with HPCA Gene DYT2.

Test Process

NGS genetic testing for DYT2 typically involves collecting a small sample of blood or saliva from the patient. The sample is then sent to a laboratory for analysis, where DNA sequencing is performed to identify any mutations in the HPCA gene or other genes associated with dystonia. The results of the test can help doctors diagnose the disorder and develop an appropriate treatment plan.

Who Should Consider the Test?

It is important to note that genetic testing for DYT2 is not necessary for everyone with dystonia. The disorder can often be diagnosed based on clinical symptoms and a physical exam. However, genetic testing may be recommended for individuals with a family history of dystonia or for those who have atypical or early-onset symptoms. Genetic testing can also be helpful for genetic counseling and family planning purposes.

Test Details

The HPCA gene, also known as DYT2, is associated with a rare genetic movement disorder called dystonia. Dystonia is a neurological condition characterized by involuntary muscle contractions that cause repetitive movements or abnormal postures. DYT2 is an autosomal recessive disorder, which means that a person must inherit two copies of the mutated gene (one from each parent) to develop the disorder.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing is a type of genetic test that uses advanced sequencing technology to analyze multiple genes simultaneously. NGS testing can identify mutations in the HPCA gene and other genes associated with dystonia. This type of testing is particularly useful for identifying rare genetic disorders like DYT2, which may be missed by traditional genetic testing methods.
