The MT-TK gene is associated with Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy, Lactic Acidosis, and Stroke-like episodes (MERRF Syndrome), a rare genetic disorder that affects the body’s cells’ ability to produce energy. The MT-TK gene, located in mitochondrial DNA, plays a critical role in the translation process of mitochondrial proteins essential for cellular energy production. Mutations in the MT-TK gene can lead to MERRF Syndrome, characterized by muscle weakness, epilepsy, hearing loss, and other neurological and muscular symptoms.

To diagnose and confirm MERRF Syndrome, genetic testing targeting the MT-TK gene is crucial. DNA Labs UAE offers a specialized genetic test for identifying mutations in the MT-TK gene related to MERRF Syndrome. The test involves collecting a DNA sample, usually through a blood draw, and analyzing the genetic material for specific mutations associated with the syndrome.

The cost of the MT-TK related genetic test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This test is instrumental for individuals with a family history of MERRF Syndrome or those exhibiting symptoms associated with the disorder. Early and accurate diagnosis through genetic testing can aid in the management of symptoms and guide treatment options, significantly improving the quality of life for affected individuals.

MT-TK Gene MERRF syndrome MT-TK related Genetic Test

Are you or someone you know experiencing symptoms of MERRF syndrome? DNA Labs UAE offers the MT-TK Gene MERRF syndrome MT-TK related Genetic Test at a cost of AED 4400.0. This test is designed to diagnose MERRF syndrome and provide valuable information for medical management and genetic counseling.

Test Components and Price

The MT-TK Gene MERRF syndrome MT-TK related Genetic Test is priced at AED 4400.0. The test requires a sample of either blood, extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA card.

Report Delivery and Method

After the sample is collected, the report will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks. The test utilizes NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) technology, which allows for the simultaneous sequencing of multiple genes, including the MT-TK gene, in a more efficient and cost-effective manner.

Test Type and Doctor

The MT-TK Gene MERRF syndrome MT-TK related Genetic Test falls under the category of Neurological Disorders. It is recommended to consult with a Neurologist for this test.

Test Department and Pre Test Information

The test is conducted by the Genetics department. Prior to the test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient who is going for the MT-TK Gene MERRF syndrome MT-TK related NGS Genetic DNA Test. Additionally, a Genetic Counselling session may be required to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with MERRF syndrome.

Test Details

The MT-TK gene is a mitochondrial gene that is associated with the development of MERRF syndrome (Myoclonic Epilepsy with Ragged Red Fibers). MERRF syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects the nervous system and muscles.

The MT-TK related NGS genetic test analyzes the MT-TK gene for any mutations or abnormalities. This test can help diagnose MERRF syndrome by identifying any mutations or variations in the MT-TK gene associated with the disorder.

The NGS technology used in this test allows for efficient and cost-effective sequencing of multiple genes, including the MT-TK gene.

In addition to diagnosing MERRF syndrome, this genetic test can also be used for carrier testing in individuals with a family history of the disorder or for prenatal testing in couples at risk of having a child with MERRF syndrome.

Sample Collection and Analysis

The MT-TK related NGS genetic test requires a sample of DNA, which can be collected through a blood sample or a cheek swab. The collected DNA is then sequenced using NGS technology to identify any mutations or variations in the MT-TK gene.

Test Results and Their Importance

The results of the MT-TK related NGS genetic test provide important information for individuals and their families. These include a diagnosis of MERRF syndrome, carrier status, and the risk of passing the disorder onto future generations.

With this information, medical management, family planning, and genetic counseling can be tailored to the specific needs of the individual and their family.

If you suspect MERRF syndrome or have a family history of the disorder, don’t hesitate to get tested. Contact DNA Labs UAE today to schedule your MT-TK Gene MERRF syndrome MT-TK related Genetic Test.
