The MT-TS1 gene is associated with a rare genetic condition known as MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome. This syndrome combines features of two mitochondrial disorders: Myoclonic Epilepsy with Ragged Red Fibers (MERRF) and Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy, Lactic Acidosis, and Stroke-like episodes (MELAS). Both disorders affect multiple systems in the body, particularly the muscles and the nervous system, leading to a wide range of symptoms including muscle weakness, seizures, hearing loss, and stroke-like episodes.

The MT-TS1 gene plays a crucial role in mitochondrial function, specifically in the transfer RNA (tRNA) that is essential for the proper production of proteins within the mitochondria. Mutations in this gene can disrupt mitochondrial protein synthesis, leading to impaired energy production in cells, which is a hallmark of mitochondrial disorders.

To diagnose and confirm the presence of MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome, a genetic test targeting the MT-TS1 gene can be conducted. This test involves analyzing the DNA to identify mutations in the MT-TS1 gene that are known to cause the syndrome.

In the United Arab Emirates, this specific genetic test is available at DNA Labs UAE. The test cost is 4400 AED. By opting for this test, individuals who exhibit symptoms of MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome or have a family history of mitochondrial disorders can gain valuable insights into their genetic makeup. This not only aids in the diagnosis but also helps in managing the condition more effectively through personalized treatment plans and preventive measures.

Test Details

The MT-TS1 gene is associated with a group of disorders known as mitochondrial encephalomyopathies. These disorders are characterized by impaired energy production in the mitochondria, leading to various symptoms affecting multiple organ systems. MERRF (Myoclonic Epilepsy with Ragged Red Fibers) and MELAS (Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy, Lactic Acidosis, and Stroke-like Episodes) are two specific mitochondrial encephalomyopathies that can have overlapping features.

The MT-TS1 gene is one of the genes that can be affected in individuals with MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome. NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) genetic testing is a technique used to analyze multiple genes simultaneously and identify genetic variations or mutations that may be contributing to a particular disorder. In the case of MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome, an NGS genetic test targeting the MT-TS1 gene would be performed to detect any variations or mutations in this gene that may be causing or contributing to the syndrome.

This genetic test can help confirm a diagnosis of MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome and provide important information for the management and treatment of the condition. It can also be used for genetic counseling and family planning purposes.
