The TAF1 Gene DYT3 Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic tool offered by DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify mutations in the TAF1 gene that are associated with DYT3 dystonia. DYT3 dystonia, also known as Lubag disease, is a rare, X-linked dominant neurological disorder that primarily affects males, leading to progressive dystonia and parkinsonism. The test is crucial for individuals with a family history of DYT3 dystonia or those presenting symptoms, as it provides definitive genetic evidence of the condition, facilitating early intervention and management strategies.

Performed in the advanced facilities of DNA Labs UAE, the test involves collecting a DNA sample from the patient, usually through a blood draw or a cheek swab, and analyzing it for specific mutations in the TAF1 gene. The process is highly accurate and provides valuable insights into the genetic underpinnings of the disorder, aiding in the diagnosis and potentially guiding treatment options.

The cost of the TAF1 Gene DYT3 Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This price reflects the specialized nature of the test and the advanced technology and expertise required to conduct it. For patients and families affected by DYT3 dystonia, this test represents a critical step towards understanding their condition and navigating the challenges it presents.

TAF1 Gene DYT3 Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the TAF1 Gene DYT3 Genetic Test for the diagnosis of DYT3 dystonia, a rare neurological disorder. This test can help identify mutations in the TAF1 gene, which is associated with DYT3 dystonia.

Test Details

DYT3 dystonia is characterized by involuntary muscle contractions, repetitive movements, and abnormal postures. It typically begins in childhood or adolescence and primarily affects the legs and lower body, leading to difficulties with walking and balance.

The TAF1 gene provides instructions for a protein involved in regulating gene expression, which is the process of turning genes on and off in different cells and tissues. Mutations in the TAF1 gene can disrupt this process and contribute to the development of DYT3 dystonia.

Our TAF1 Gene DYT3 Genetic Test utilizes NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) technology, which allows for the sequencing of large portions of the genome simultaneously. This method is more efficient and cost-effective compared to traditional Sanger sequencing methods.

Test Components and Price

The TAF1 Gene DYT3 Genetic Test is priced at 4400.0 AED. The test requires a blood sample, extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA Card.

Report Delivery and Test Department

After the sample is collected, the report will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks. The test is conducted in our Genetics department, overseen by a Neurologist.

Pre Test Information

Prior to the test, we recommend providing the clinical history of the patient who will undergo the TAF1 Gene DYT3 NGS Genetic DNA Test. Additionally, a Genetic Counselling session will be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by TAF1 Gene DYT3.

Benefits of the TAF1 Gene DYT3 Genetic Test

NGS testing for the TAF1 gene can aid in the diagnosis of DYT3 dystonia and help inform treatment decisions for affected individuals and their families. This comprehensive genetic test provides valuable information in a shorter amount of time, allowing for more efficient and targeted management of the disorder.

The TAF1 gene is associated with DYT3 dystonia, a rare neurological disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions that cause repetitive movements and abnormal postures. DYT3 dystonia usually begins in childhood or adolescence and affects the legs and lower body, causing difficulty with walking and balance. The TAF1 gene provides instructions for making a protein that is involved in regulating gene expression, which is the process by which genes are turned on and off in different cells and tissues. Mutations in the TAF1 gene can disrupt this process and lead to the development of DYT3 dystonia.

NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) genetic testing is a type of genetic testing that can sequence large portions of the genome at once. This allows for the identification of mutations in genes associated with specific diseases, such as DYT3 dystonia. NGS testing is more efficient and cost-effective than traditional Sanger sequencing methods, and can provide more comprehensive genetic information in a shorter amount of time. NGS testing for the TAF1 gene can help diagnose DYT3 dystonia and inform treatment decisions for affected individuals and their families.
