The “SHANK2 Gene Autism Susceptibility X-Linked Type 17 Genetic Test” is a specialized diagnostic tool designed to identify mutations in the SHANK2 gene, which have been linked to an increased risk of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This genetic test is crucial for individuals with a family history of autism or those showing symptoms of ASD, as it can provide a clearer understanding of their condition and guide potential treatment and management strategies.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic testing and analysis, this test involves collecting a DNA sample from the patient, typically through a blood draw or a cheek swab. The sample is then analyzed to detect any abnormalities or mutations in the SHANK2 gene that are associated with autism susceptibility X-linked type 17, a specific subtype of autism that has a genetic basis.

The cost of the SHANK2 Gene Autism Susceptibility X-Linked Type 17 Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This price reflects the comprehensive nature of the test, including the sophisticated technology and expertise required to accurately identify mutations in the SHANK2 gene. While the cost may seem high, the value of the insights gained from this test can be invaluable for affected individuals and their families, offering a path towards more personalized and effective approaches to managing autism spectrum disorders.

SHANK2 Gene Autism susceptibility X-linked type 17 Genetic Test

Components: Blood or Extracted DNA or One drop Blood on FTA Card

Price: 4400.0 AED

Sample Condition: Blood or Extracted DNA or One drop Blood on FTA Card

Report Delivery: 3 to 4 Weeks

Method: NGS Technology

Test Type: Neurological Disorders

Doctor: Neurologist

Test Department: Genetics

Pre Test Information: Clinical History of Patient who is going for SHANK2 Gene Autism susceptibility, X-linked type 17 NGS Genetic DNA Test. A Genetic Counselling session to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with SHANK2 Gene Autism susceptibility, X-linked type 17.

Test Details: The SHANK2 gene is located on the X chromosome and is involved in the development and function of synapses in the brain. Mutations in this gene have been linked to an increased risk of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disorders. NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) genetic testing is a type of DNA sequencing technology that can analyze multiple genes simultaneously. This type of testing can identify mutations in the SHANK2 gene and other genes associated with ASD and related conditions. The X-linked type 17 refers to the mode of inheritance of the SHANK2 gene mutation, which is inherited on the X chromosome. This means that the mutation is more common in males, who only have one X chromosome, while females have two X chromosomes and may carry a normal copy of the gene on their other X chromosome. NGS genetic testing for SHANK2 mutations may be recommended for individuals with a family history of ASD or other neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as those with symptoms suggestive of these conditions. The results of genetic testing can help with diagnosis, treatment, and genetic counseling for affected individuals and their families.
