Test ID: PRCNG    
PROCR Gene, Next-Generation Sequencing, Varies

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

Ascertaining a pathogenic alteration in the PROCR gene in patients with recurrent unprovoked venous thromboembolism (VTE)before the age of 40, a strong family history of unexplained and unprovoked VTE, and prior genetic testing for more common genetic variants associated with thrombophilia that does not correlate with the severity of the patient’s thrombophilia or clinical presentation


This test is not intended 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 alterations in the PROCR gene associated with increased risk for venous thromboembolism.


The gene target for this test is:

Gene name (transcript): PROCR (GRCh37 [hg19] NM_006404)

Chromosomal location: 20q11.22

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

No screening tests exist for defects in PROCR. A set of clinical guidelines from the British Society for Haematology on testing for heritable thrombophilia is freely available.(1) A genetic consultation is strongly recommended prior to ordering PROCR sequencing.
