The MPZ Gene CMT2J Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered at DNA Labs UAE, aimed at detecting mutations in the MPZ gene, which are linked to Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2J (CMT2J). CMT2J is a rare form of the Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a group of disorders that affect the peripheral nerves, leading to muscle weakness and sensory problems, primarily in the feet and legs, and sometimes affecting the hands and arms.

The MPZ gene plays a crucial role in the functioning and maintenance of myelin, the protective sheath covering nerve fibers. Mutations in this gene can disrupt nerve signal transmission, leading to the symptoms associated with CMT2J. Early and accurate detection of these mutations can aid in the diagnosis, allowing for better management and understanding of the disease’s progression.

The test is priced at 4400 AED and is conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility known for its state-of-the-art genetic testing services. The test involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw or cheek swab, which is then analyzed for specific mutations in the MPZ gene. Results from this test can provide crucial information for affected individuals and their families, including the confirmation of a CMT2J diagnosis, insight into the disease’s progression, and guidance for genetic counseling.

MPZ Gene CMT2J Genetic Test – Cost AED: 4400.0

Welcome to DNA Labs UAE, your trusted genetic testing laboratory. We offer the MPZ Gene CMT2J Genetic Test at a competitive price of 4400.0 AED. This test is specifically designed to diagnose and identify the MPZ gene mutation associated with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2J (CMT2J).

Test Details

The MPZ gene is responsible for the production of a protein called myelin protein zero (MPZ), which plays a crucial role in the formation and maintenance of the myelin sheath that protects nerve fibers. Mutations in the MPZ gene can lead to the development of CMT2J, a type of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease characterized by progressive muscle weakness and atrophy, sensory loss, and foot deformities.

Our MPZ Gene CMT2J Genetic Test utilizes NGS (next-generation sequencing) technology, which allows us to analyze the entire coding region of the MPZ gene, as well as other genes associated with CMT2J or presenting similar symptoms. This comprehensive analysis enables us to detect both known and novel mutations, providing valuable insights into the patient’s genetic profile.

NGS genetic testing is particularly useful for confirming a diagnosis of CMT2J, identifying carriers of the disease, and offering genetic counseling to affected families. Additionally, the data obtained from NGS testing contributes to ongoing research efforts aimed at understanding the underlying genetic mechanisms of CMT2J, potentially leading to the development of new treatments and therapies.

Test Components and Price

The MPZ Gene CMT2J Genetic Test is priced at 4400.0 AED. The test requires a blood sample, extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA card for analysis.

Report Delivery

Our laboratory aims to provide efficient service. After sample collection, the report will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Test Type and Department

The MPZ Gene CMT2J Genetic Test falls under the category of neurological disorders. It is conducted by our skilled neurologists in the Genetics department.

Pre Test Information

Prior to undergoing the MPZ Gene CMT2J NGS Genetic DNA Test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient. Additionally, a genetic counseling session will be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by MPZ Gene CMT2J.

At DNA Labs UAE, we are committed to providing accurate and reliable genetic testing services. Our MPZ Gene CMT2J Genetic Test can help diagnose this specific type of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, offer genetic counseling, and contribute to the advancement of medical research.

Test Details

The MPZ gene is responsible for the production of a protein called myelin protein zero (MPZ), which is important for the formation and maintenance of the myelin sheath that surrounds and protects nerve fibers. Mutations in the MPZ gene can cause a type of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease called CMT2J, which is characterized by progressive muscle weakness and atrophy, sensory loss, and foot deformities.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing is a type of DNA analysis that can identify mutations in the MPZ gene and other genes associated with CMT2J. This test involves sequencing the entire coding region of the MPZ gene, as well as other genes that are known to cause CMT2J or have similar symptoms. NGS testing can detect both known and novel mutations, providing a comprehensive analysis of the patient’s genetic profile.

NGS genetic testing can be useful for confirming a diagnosis of CMT2J, as well as for identifying carriers of the disease and for providing genetic counseling to affected families. It can also help researchers to better understand the underlying genetic mechanisms of CMT2J, which may lead to the development of new treatments and therapies.
