Method Laboratories may use a variety of methods to identify genetic variants. The sensitivity and specificity of these methods can vary, and some pathogenic variants in the gene may not be identified. The failure to identify a pathogenic variant may not necessarily mean that the gene is normal. Requestors should seek further advice from the laboratory.
Reference sequence No Reference Sequence for this gene.
Application Variations in this gene/locus can be associated with following disorder/s:

Over 400 genes associated with human disease or heritable traits have been localised to this chromosome. Variations in the structure, number, or inheritance of this chromosome may cause a variety of disorders.
Requestors should be aware that testing for inherited genetic variants often raises significant medical, ethical, psychological, and legal issues. Testing should be done in accordance with national guidelines which address clinical issues NHMRC and laboratory requirements NPAAC. Consultation with the genetics laboratory, a specialist clinician, or a clinical genetics service may be warranted.
