The SLC1A4 gene is essential in the development and functioning of the central nervous system. Mutations in this gene have been linked to developmental delays and microcephaly, a condition characterized by a smaller head size indicative of abnormal brain development. These conditions can lead to various neurological issues and developmental challenges, significantly affecting an individual’s quality of life. Recognizing the importance of early diagnosis and intervention, DNA Labs UAE offers a specialized genetic test aimed at identifying mutations in the SLC1A4 gene.

This test is a crucial tool for families and healthcare providers, offering insights that can lead to better-informed decisions regarding care and management. By understanding the genetic underpinnings of these conditions, tailored therapies and support systems can be implemented, potentially improving developmental outcomes.

The cost of the SLC1A4 related genetic test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This investment covers the comprehensive analysis required to detect any abnormalities associated with the gene, providing a critical step towards personalized medical care for affected individuals. With the results, healthcare professionals can devise a more targeted approach in managing and supporting the developmental needs of those with mutations in the SLC1A4 gene, emphasizing the test’s value in enhancing patient care.

SLC1A4 Gene Developmental Delay and Microcephaly

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the SLC1A4 Gene Developmental Delay and Microcephaly genetic test. This test is designed to identify mutations in the SLC1A4 gene, which has been linked to developmental delay and microcephaly.

Test Details

The SLC1A4 gene encodes a protein called glutamate transporter 1 (GLT-1), responsible for transporting the neurotransmitter glutamate out of the synapse and into surrounding cells. Mutations in SLC1A4 have been associated with developmental delay and microcephaly, a condition characterized by a smaller than average head size and often accompanied by intellectual disability.

Our SLC1A4 Gene Developmental Delay and Microcephaly test utilizes NGS (next-generation sequencing) technology. This method involves sequencing the entire coding region of the gene to identify any changes or variations that may be present. NGS testing is highly sensitive and specific, making it an effective tool for diagnosing a wide range of genetic disorders.

Test Components and Price

The SLC1A4 Gene Developmental Delay and Microcephaly genetic test is priced at 4400.0 AED.

Sample Condition

We accept blood samples, extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA card for this test.

Report Delivery

Test results are typically delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Test Type and Department

The SLC1A4 Gene Developmental Delay and Microcephaly test falls under the category of Neurological Disorders and is conducted by our Genetics department.

Referring Doctor

This test is typically recommended by a Neurologist.

Pre-Test Information

Prior to undergoing the SLC1A4 Gene Developmental Delay and Microcephaly test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient. Additionally, a genetic counseling session may be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by SLC1A4-related developmental delay and microcephaly.

Treatment and Management

If a mutation is identified in the SLC1A4 gene, genetic counseling may be recommended to help individuals and families understand the implications of the diagnosis. Treatment options may include early intervention services, educational support, and therapy to address developmental delays and intellectual disability.

Test Details

SLC1A4 is a gene that encodes a protein called glutamate transporter 1 (GLT-1). GLT-1 is responsible for transporting the neurotransmitter glutamate out of the synapse and into surrounding cells, where it can be metabolized or recycled. Mutations in SLC1A4 have been linked to developmental delay and microcephaly, which is a condition characterized by a smaller than average head size and often associated with intellectual disability.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing can be used to identify mutations in the SLC1A4 gene. This type of testing involves sequencing the entire coding region of the gene to identify any changes or variations that may be present. NGS testing is a highly sensitive and specific method for identifying genetic mutations, and can be used to diagnose a wide range of genetic disorders.

If a mutation is identified in the SLC1A4 gene, genetic counseling may be recommended to help individuals and families understand the implications of the diagnosis and to explore options for treatment and management of the condition. Treatment may include early intervention services, educational support, and therapy to address developmental delays and intellectual disability.
