The SLC2A1 gene, also known as the solute carrier family 2 member 1 gene, is crucial in the human body for the transport of glucose across the blood-brain barrier. Mutations in this gene are associated with a rare neurological disorder known as DYT18, also referred to as GLUT1 deficiency syndrome. This condition can lead to various symptoms including seizures, movement disorders, and developmental delays.

The DYT18 genetic test is a specialized diagnostic tool designed to detect mutations in the SLC2A1 gene, helping in the diagnosis of GLUT1 deficiency syndrome. This test is essential for individuals showing symptoms of the disorder, as an accurate diagnosis can lead to appropriate treatment and management strategies, including dietary modifications that can significantly improve symptoms.

In the UAE, DNA Labs UAE offers the SLC2A1 gene DYT18 genetic test. The cost of the test is 4400 AED. DNA Labs UAE is equipped with advanced genetic testing technology and staffed by professionals with expertise in genetic diagnostics, ensuring accurate and reliable results. The test involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw or a cheek swab, which is then analyzed in the laboratory for the presence of mutations in the SLC2A1 gene.

This test is an important step for patients and their families in understanding and managing GLUT1 deficiency syndrome, providing them with the information needed to make informed decisions about their health care.

SLC2A1 Gene DYT18 Genetic Test – Cost AED 4400.0

Test Name: SLC2A1 Gene DYT18 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 SLC2A1 Gene DYT18 NGS Genetic DNA Test. A Genetic Counselling session to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with SLC2A1 Gene DYT18.

Test Details: The SLC2A1 gene, also known as GLUT1, codes for a protein called glucose transporter type 1, which is responsible for transporting glucose across the blood-brain barrier. Mutations in this gene can lead to a condition called DYT18, which is a rare form of dystonia that affects movement and coordination. NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing can be used to analyze the SLC2A1 gene for mutations that may cause DYT18. This type of testing is a high-throughput method that allows for the simultaneous analysis of multiple genes, providing a comprehensive view of an individual’s genetic makeup. If a mutation is identified in the SLC2A1 gene, it can help diagnose DYT18 and guide treatment options. Treatment may include medications to manage symptoms, physical therapy to improve movement and coordination, and deep brain stimulation to help control involuntary movements.
