Test ID: F13NG    
F13A1 and F13B Genes, Next-Generation Sequencing, Varies

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

Detecting the pathogenic alterations within the F13A1 and F13B genes to delineate the underlying molecular defect in a patient with a laboratory diagnosis of factor XIII deficiency

 

Genetic confirmation of hereditary factor XIII deficiency with the identification of an alteration in either the F13A1 or F13B gene known or suspected to cause the condition

 

Testing for close family members of an individual with a factor XIII deficiency diagnosis

 

This test is not useful for prenatal diagnosis

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

This test detects pathogenic alterations within the F13A1 and F13B genes to delineate the underlying molecular defect in a patient with a laboratory diagnosis of factor XIII deficiency.

 

The gene targets for this test are:

Gene name (transcript): F13A1 (GRCh37 [hg19] NM_000129)

Chromosomal location: 6p24-p25

 

Gene name (transcript): F13B (GRCh37 [hg19] NM_001994)

Chromosomal location: 1q31-q32.1

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

A standard testing algorithm for factor 13 deficiency (FXIIID) has been developed by the Scientific and Standardization Committee of the International Society for Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH).(1)

 

Genetic testing for factor XIII deficiency is indicated if:

-Factor XIII activity (FXIII) is reduced on a qualitative functional FXIII activity test

-Acquired causes of factor XIII deficiency have been excluded
