Test ID: IVDA    
Isovaleryl-CoA Dehydrogenase (IVD) Gene Mutation Analysis (A282V)

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Confirmation of clinical or biochemical diagnosis of isovaleric acidemia


Providing prognostic information for patients with isovaleric acidemia

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct genetic test or proper submission of the test request

This test is used to detect the A282V mutation, also reported as A314V, within exon 9 of the IVD gene; it includes only the A282V mutation. This mutation may confer a milder clinical phenotype. This test is recommended only after appropriate biochemical testing (OAU / Organic Acids Screen, Urine).

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

See Newborn Screening Follow-up for Isolated C5 Acylcarnitine Elevations (also applies to any plasma or serum C5 acylcarnitine elevations) in Special Instructions.
