Test Catalog

Test ID: CLADP    
Congenital Lactic Acidosis Panel, Varies

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

Follow up for abnormal biochemical results suggestive of congenital lactic acidosis


Establishing a molecular diagnosis for patients with congenital lactic acidosis


Identifying variants within genes known to be associated with congenital lactic acidosis, allowing for predictive testing of at-risk family members

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

This test utilizes next-generation sequencing (NGS) to detect single nucleotide and copy number variants in 28 genes associated with congenital lactic acidosis: ACAD9, AGK, DLD, ECHS1, FBXL4, FLAD1, FOXRED1, GFER, HADHA, HADHB, HLCS, MRPL3, MRPS22, NDUFB11, NDUFS4, OGDH, PC, PDHA1, PDHX, PDP1, SLC19A2, SLC19A3, SLC25A19, SUCLG1, TMEM70, TPK1, UQCRC2, VARS2.


See Targeted Genes and Methodology Details for Congenital Lactic Acidosis Panel in Special Instructions and Method Description for additional details.


Additionally, mitochondrial genome sequencing including amplification of the entire mitochondrial genome by long-range polymerase chain reaction (LRPCR) followed by sequencing on the NGS platform is included to evaluate for variants within the mitochondrial genome.


Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with diagnosis, prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling for disorders causing congenital lactic acidosis.


Additional first tier testing may be considered/recommended. For more information see Ordering Guidance.
