The MT-TL1 gene is closely associated with MELAS syndrome, a mitochondrial disorder characterized by mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes. Mutations in the MT-TL1 gene, which is responsible for mitochondrial tRNA leucine 1, can lead to impaired mitochondrial protein synthesis, affecting cellular energy production. This has significant implications for the nervous system and muscles, leading to the symptoms observed in MELAS syndrome.

To diagnose and understand the genetic basis of MELAS syndrome in affected individuals, genetic testing targeting the MT-TL1 gene mutations is crucial. DNA Labs UAE offers a specialized genetic test for identifying mutations in the MT-TL1 gene, which is essential for confirming the diagnosis of MELAS syndrome and related mitochondrial disorders. This test is particularly valuable for patients showing symptoms of MELAS syndrome or those with a family history of mitochondrial diseases.

The cost of the MT-TL1 gene-related genetic test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This test provides critical insights into the genetic underpinnings of MELAS syndrome, enabling personalized treatment plans and genetic counseling for affected families. It involves collecting a DNA sample, usually through a blood draw or cheek swab, and analyzing it for specific mutations in the MT-TL1 gene that are known to cause the syndrome.

By offering this test, DNA Labs UAE plays a vital role in the diagnosis and management of MELAS syndrome, helping patients and their families navigate the complexities of this mitochondrial disorder with informed medical and genetic information.

Test Details

The MT-TL1 gene is associated with a mitochondrial disorder called MELAS syndrome, which stands for Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy, Lactic Acidosis, and Stroke-like episodes. MELAS syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects multiple systems in the body, particularly the brain and muscles.

The MT-TL1 gene is responsible for encoding a specific transfer RNA (tRNA) molecule involved in protein synthesis within mitochondria. Mutations in this gene can lead to a deficiency in the tRNA molecule, resulting in impaired mitochondrial function and energy production.

To diagnose MELAS syndrome and identify mutations in the MT-TL1 gene, a Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) genetic test can be performed. NGS is a high-throughput sequencing method that allows for the simultaneous analysis of multiple genes or even the entire genome. In the case of MELAS syndrome, the NGS test would specifically target the MT-TL1 gene to identify any pathogenic mutations.

NGS genetic testing can provide valuable information about the presence of mutations in the MT-TL1 gene, which can help confirm a diagnosis of MELAS syndrome. This information can also be used for genetic counseling, as it can provide insight into the risk of passing the condition onto future generations. Additionally, NGS testing can help guide treatment decisions and management strategies for individuals with MELAS syndrome.
