Test ID: UGTFG    
UDP-Glucuronosyl Transferase 1A1 (UGT1A1), Full Gene Sequencing, Varies

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

Genomic DNA is extracted from whole blood. The UGT1A1 gene is amplified by PCR. The PCR product is then purified and sequenced in both directions using fluorescent dye-terminator chemistry. Sequencing products are separated on an automated sequencer and trace files analyzed for sequence variants in the exons and intron/exon boundaries using variant detection software and visual inspection.(Skierka J, O'Kane D: UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1A1 and the glucuronidation in oncology applications and hyperbilirubinemia. In Molecular Diagnostics: Techniques and Applications for the Clinical Laboratory. Edited by WW Grody, RM Nakamura, FL Kiechle, CM Strom. Academic Press 2010, pp 409-420)

PDF Report Indicates whether the report includes an additional document with charts, images or other enriched information

No

Day(s) Performed Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Tuesday

Report Available The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.

7 to 14 days

Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

Whole blood/Saliva Swab: 2 weeks; Extracted DNA: 2 months

Performing Laboratory Location Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test
