The SLC16A2 gene test is a critical diagnostic tool for Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome (AHDS), a rare X-linked recessive disorder affecting neurological development and function. This genetic test focuses on identifying mutations in the SLC16A2 gene, which plays a significant role in thyroid hormone transport across the brain. Mutations in this gene can lead to the characteristic symptoms of AHDS, including intellectual disability, muscle weakness, and movement disorders.

DNA Labs UAE offers this specialized genetic test for individuals suspected of having AHDS. The test cost is set at 4400 AED. Conducting the test involves collecting a DNA sample, usually through a blood draw, which is then analyzed in the lab for any genetic anomalies in the SLC16A2 gene. The results from this test can provide essential information for the diagnosis, management, and understanding of the condition, allowing for tailored care and support for affected individuals and their families.

SLC16A2 Gene Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome Genetic Test

Are you or a loved one experiencing symptoms of Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome? DNA Labs UAE offers the SLC16A2 Gene Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome Genetic Test to help diagnose this rare genetic disorder. Read on to learn more about the test, its components, cost, and other important details.

Test Details

The SLC16A2 gene is associated with Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects the development of the brain and nervous system. This gene provides instructions for making a protein called monocarboxylate transporter 8 (MCT8), which plays a crucial role in the transport of thyroid hormones into cells. Mutations in the SLC16A2 gene can disrupt the function of MCT8, leading to a buildup of thyroid hormones in the blood and a deficiency of these hormones in the brain. This can result in intellectual disability, delayed development, muscle weakness, and other neurological symptoms.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing can be used to detect mutations in the SLC16A2 gene and confirm a diagnosis of Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome. This type of testing analyzes a person’s DNA to identify changes or variations in specific genes that may be causing a particular condition.

Genetic testing can be helpful for individuals with symptoms of Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome, as well as their family members who may be at risk of inheriting the condition. It can also be used for carrier testing, which can determine whether a person carries a mutated copy of the SLC16A2 gene and could pass it on to their children.
