Ordering Guidance

This assay will only detect the F2 c.*97G>A (rs1799963) variant associated with thrombophilia. To detect other pathogenic alterations in the F2 gene of a patient with a laboratory diagnosis of thrombophilia, order F2NGS / F2 Gene Next Generation Sequencing, Varies.

 

This assay will not detect alterations in individuals with thrombophilia caused by mechanisms other than the F2 c.*97G>A variant. For those situations consider ordering AATHR / Thrombophilia Profile, Plasma and Whole Blood.

Specimen Required

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 the F2 c.*97G>A variant (legacy G20210A).

Clinical Information
Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test

The prothrombin (PT) F2 c.*97G>A (legacy G20210A) variant is a common variant within the 3' untranslated region of the prothrombin gene, affecting 1.5% to 3% of white Americans, especially persons of southern European ancestry. The F2 c.*97G>A variant is less common among African Americans (carrier frequency of 0.4%). The F2 c.*97G>A variant is associated with a 3-fold increased risk of venous thromboembolism due to increased plasma prothrombin activity among carriers.

Reference Values
Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

Negative

Interpretation
Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

The results will be reported as:

-Negative for the c.*97G>A variant

-Heterozygous for the c.*97G>A variant

-Homozygous for the c.*97G>A variant

Cautions
Discusses conditions that may cause diagnostic confusion, including improper specimen collection and handling, inappropriate test selection, and interfering substances

This assay will not detect alterations in individuals with thrombophilia caused by mechanisms other than the prothrombin F2 c.*97G>A variant.

 

Rare single nucleotide variants under the primers can cause preferential amplification of one allele. In many cases, there is no indication that this interference has occurred. Consequently, the analysis could be done on data from only one allele, which may cause a false-negative result or an incorrect allele frequency (homozygous instead of heterozygous).

 

Patients receiving allogenic stem cell transplants prior to having blood drawn for DNA based testing may have false-normal or abnormal results depending on the genotype of the stem cell donor.

 

Consultations with the Mayo Clinic Special Coagulation Clinic Thrombophilia Center, and/or Medical Genetics are available and may be especially helpful in complex cases or in situations in which the diagnosis is atypical or uncertain. Genetic counseling is recommended before testing asymptomatic family members.
