The PRNP Gene Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at identifying mutations in the PRNP gene, which are linked to the development of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, a rare and fatal degenerative brain disorder. This test is crucial for individuals with a family history of CJD or those exhibiting symptoms of the disease, as it can confirm the genetic predisposition and assist in the early diagnosis and management of the condition. Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic testing, the test provides a comprehensive analysis of the PRNP gene to detect specific mutations associated with CJD. The cost of the test is 4400 AED, reflecting the intricate technology and expertise required to accurately identify the genetic variations linked to this devastating disease.

Test Details

The PRNP gene is associated with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), a rare, degenerative, and fatal brain disorder. NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing is a method used to analyze DNA sequences and identify mutations or variants in the PRNP gene that may increase the risk of developing CJD.

NGS genetic testing can provide valuable information for individuals with a family history of CJD or those who have symptoms of the disease. The test can also help diagnose CJD in individuals who have unexplained neurological symptoms.

The PRNP gene encodes for the prion protein, which is found in the brain and other tissues. In CJD, the prion protein undergoes a conformational change, leading to the formation of abnormal prions that accumulate in the brain and cause damage to nerve cells.

NGS genetic testing of the PRNP gene can identify mutations or variants that increase the risk of developing CJD. Some of these mutations are associated with inherited forms of CJD, while others are sporadic (occurring spontaneously) or acquired (resulting from exposure to contaminated tissues or medical procedures).

NGS genetic testing for CJD can be performed on a blood or tissue sample. The test typically involves sequencing the entire PRNP gene or specific regions of the gene that are known to be associated with CJD.

The results of the test can help guide treatment and management of the disease.
