The MT-TS2 gene MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that combines features of two mitochondrial diseases: Myoclonic Epilepsy with Ragged Red Fibers (MERRF) and Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy, Lactic Acidosis, and Stroke-like episodes (MELAS). This condition is associated with mutations in the mitochondrial gene MT-TS2, which is involved in the mitochondrial protein synthesis necessary for cellular energy production. Symptoms can vary widely among affected individuals and may include muscle weakness, seizures, hearing loss, and episodes resembling strokes.

To diagnose this complex syndrome, genetic testing is crucial. DNA Labs UAE offers a specific test targeting the MT-TS2 gene to identify mutations linked to the MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome. This test is pivotal for confirming the diagnosis, understanding the disease’s progression, and guiding treatment strategies.

The cost of the MT-TS2 related genetic test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This test is conducted with high precision and accuracy, providing essential information for affected individuals and their families. By pinpointing the exact genetic mutation, healthcare providers can offer more personalized care plans and potentially connect patients with targeted therapies or clinical trials.

Test Details

The MT-TS2 gene is a gene associated with mitochondrial diseases, specifically the MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by a combination of symptoms seen in both MERRF (Myoclonic Epilepsy with Ragged Red Fibers) and MELAS (Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy, Lactic Acidosis, and Stroke-like episodes) syndromes.

To diagnose this syndrome, a genetic test called Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) can be performed. NGS is a high-throughput sequencing method that allows for the analysis of multiple genes simultaneously. In the case of the MT-TS2 gene, NGS can identify any variations or mutations in the gene that may be responsible for the MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome.

The NGS genetic test involves obtaining a sample of DNA, typically from blood or saliva, from the individual being tested. The DNA is then sequenced using NGS technology, which generates a large amount of sequencing data. This data is then analyzed to identify any variations or mutations in the MT-TS2 gene.

The results of the NGS genetic test can help confirm a diagnosis of the MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome and provide information about the specific genetic variant(s) involved. This information can be useful for understanding the underlying cause of the syndrome, predicting disease progression, and informing treatment options. It can also be helpful for genetic counseling and family planning purposes.

It is important to note that the MT-TS2 gene is just one of many genes associated with mitochondrial diseases, and there may be other genes involved in the MERRF/MELAS overlap syndrome. Therefore, a comprehensive mitochondrial genetic panel or whole exome sequencing may be recommended to identify potential variations in other genes as well.
