Test Catalog

Test ID: DCMGP    
Dilated Cardiomyopathy Multi-Gene Panel, Next-Generation Sequencing, Blood

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

Providing a comprehensive genetic evaluation for patients with a personal or family history suggestive of hereditary dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM)

 

Establishing a diagnosis of a hereditary DCM, and in some cases, allowing for appropriate management and surveillance for disease features based on the gene involved

 

Identifying a pathogenic variant within a gene known to be associated with disease features that allows 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 uses next generation sequencing to test for variants in the ABCC9, ACTC1, ACTN2, ANKRD1, CRYAB, CSRP3, DES, LAMA4, LAMP2, LDB3, LMNA, MYBPC3, MYH6, MYH7, MYPN, NEXN, PLN, RAF1, RBM20, SCN5A, SGCD, TAZ, TCAP, TNNC1, TNNI3, TNNT2, TPM1, TTN (excluding the following genomic regions: Chr2(GRCh37):g. 179523879-179524002 and Chr2(GRCh37):g. 179523712-179523835), TTR, and VCL genes.

 

This test uses Sanger sequencing to test for variants in certain exons of the following genes:

MYH6 exon 26

MYH7 exon 27

 

Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling.
