The TYRP1 gene albinism oculocutaneous type 3 genetic test is a specialized diagnostic tool used to identify mutations in the TYRP1 gene, which are responsible for oculocutaneous albinism type 3 (OCA3), a form of albinism characterized by reduced melanin pigment in the hair, skin, and eyes. This condition can lead to visual problems and increased susceptibility to sun damage due to the lack of melanin. The test involves analyzing the patient’s DNA to detect any abnormalities or mutations in the TYRP1 gene, providing crucial information for diagnosis, management, and genetic counseling.

The test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic testing and personalized medicine. The cost of the TYRP1 gene albinism oculocutaneous type 3 genetic test is 4400 AED. This investment covers the comprehensive process of collecting the sample, conducting the genetic analysis, and providing a detailed report on the findings. The results from this test can help in tailoring the management plan for individuals with OCA3, including strategies to protect the skin and eyes from sun exposure and addressing vision problems.

  • NGS Technology

Price

The cost of the TYRP1 Gene Albinism Oculocutaneous Type 3 Genetic Test is 4400.0 AED.

Sample Condition

The test requires a blood sample or extracted DNA. Alternatively, one drop of blood can be collected on an FTA Card.

Report Delivery

The test results will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Method

The TYRP1 Gene Albinism Oculocutaneous Type 3 Genetic Test uses NGS (next-generation sequencing) technology for DNA analysis.

Test Type

This test falls under the category of Ophthalmology Disorders.

Doctor

The TYRP1 Gene Albinism Oculocutaneous Type 3 Genetic Test is performed by an Ophthalmologist.

Test Department

The test is conducted in the Genetics department.

Pre Test Information

Prior to the test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient who is undergoing the TYRP1 Gene Albinism Oculocutaneous Type 3 NGS Genetic DNA Test. Additionally, a genetic counseling session may be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by TYRP1 Gene Albinism Oculocutaneous Type 3.

Test Details

The TYRP1 gene is associated with oculocutaneous albinism type 3 (OCA3), a rare genetic condition that affects the production of melanin pigment in the eyes, skin, and hair. OCA3 is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, meaning an individual must inherit two copies of the mutated TYRP1 gene (one from each parent) to develop the condition.

The NGS genetic testing method is used to identify mutations in the TYRP1 gene that are associated with OCA3. This test can help diagnose individuals with symptoms of OCA3, such as light-colored hair and skin, vision problems, and increased susceptibility to sunburn and skin cancer.

NGS testing can also identify carriers of the mutated TYRP1 gene, which can be valuable information for family planning decisions. Genetic counseling may be recommended for individuals and families affected by OCA3 to discuss the inheritance pattern and potential risks to future offspring.
