Test ID: PMARP    
Postmortem Arrhythmia Panel, Varies

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

Providing a postmortem genetic evaluation in the setting of sudden unexplained death and suspicion for long QT or Brugada syndrome

 

Identification of a pathogenic variant in the decedent, which may assist with risk assessment and 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 includes next-generation sequencing and supplemental Sanger sequencing to evaluate the AKAP9, ANK2,CACNA1C, CACNA2D1, CACNB2, CAV3, GPD1L, KCNE1, KCNE2, KCNE3, KCNH2, KCNJ2, KCNJ5, KCNJ8, KCNQ1, SCN1B, SCN3B, SCN4B, SCN5A, and SNTA1 genes.

Highlights

This test is intended for use on postmortem samples (eg, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded [FFPE] tissue block) when whole blood is not available.

 

This test uses next-generation sequencing to test for variants in the AKAP9, ANK2, CACNA1C, CACNA2D1, CACNB2, CAV3, GPD1L, KCNE1, KCNE2, KCNE3, KCNH2, KCNJ2, KCNJ5, KCNJ8, KCNQ1, SCN1B, SCN3B, SCN4B, SCN5A, and SNTA1 genes.

 

This test may aid in the postmortem diagnosis of long QT or Brugada syndrome.

 

Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with familial risk assessment, screening, and genetic counseling.
