The NHS Gene Cataract X-Linked Genetic Test, available at DNA Labs UAE for a cost of 4400 AED, is a specialized diagnostic tool designed to identify mutations in the NHS gene, which are known to cause X-linked congenital cataracts. This type of cataract is inherited in an X-linked recessive pattern, predominantly affecting males, and is characterized by the clouding of the lens of the eye that is present from birth or develops shortly after. The test involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw or cheek swab, which is then analyzed in the laboratory to detect any genetic abnormalities associated with this condition. Identifying these mutations can provide crucial information for families regarding the inheritance pattern, potential for recurrence in future generations, and options for genetic counseling. It is an invaluable resource for affected individuals and their families, offering insights into the genetic underpinnings of X-linked congenital cataracts and guiding decisions regarding management and treatment.

Test Details

The NHS Gene Cataract, X-linked NGS Genetic Test is a genetic test that analyzes the DNA sequence of the X chromosome to identify mutations that are associated with cataracts. Cataracts are a common cause of vision loss and occur when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy.

X-linked cataracts are caused by mutations in genes on the X chromosome and are inherited in a recessive manner, meaning that a person must inherit two copies of the mutated gene to develop the condition.

This test can help diagnose X-linked cataracts in individuals with a family history of the condition or those who have symptoms of cataracts. It can also be used for carrier testing in individuals who may be at risk of passing the mutation on to their children.

The test uses next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to analyze the entire coding region of the genes associated with X-linked cataracts. Results of the test can help guide clinical management and genetic counseling.
