Methylmalonic Aciduria-Propionic Aciduria Combined Gene Panel, Varies

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

Follow up for abnormal biochemical results suggestive of methylmalonic acidemia or propionic acidemia


Establishing a molecular diagnosis for patients with methylmalonic acidemia or propionic acidemia


Identifying variants within genes known to be associated with methylmalonic acidemia or propionic acidemia, 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 to detect single nucleotide and copy number variants in 28 genes associated with methylmalonic aciduria-propionic aciduria: ABCD4, ACSF3, ALDH6A1, AMN, CD320, CUBN, DMGDH, CBLIF, HCFC1, LMBRD1, MCEE, MMAA, MMAB, MMACHC, MMADHC, MTHFR, MTR, MTRR, MMUT, PCCA, PCCB, PRDX1, SUCLA2, SUCLG1, TCN1, TCN2, THAP11, ZNF143. See Targeted Genes and Methodology Details for Methylmalonic Aciduria-Propionic Aciduria Combined Gene Panel in Special Instructions and Method Description for additional details.


Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with diagnosis, prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling for methylmalonic aciduria and propionic aciduria.


Additional first-tier testing may be considered/recommended.
