Cobalamin Metabolism Panel by Massively Parallel Sequencing (BCM-MitomeNGSSM)
Test Information: Combined methylmalonic aciduria (MMA) and homocystinuria is a genetically heterogeneous disorder of cobalamin (cbl; vitamin B12) metabolism. The defects affecting Cbl absorption and transport (TCNII) generally manifest in infancy or early childhood as developmental delay with megaloblastic anemia. Two enzymes in mammalian cells are known to depend on cobalamin coenzymes: methylmalonyl CoA mutase (MUT), which requires AdoCbl; and methionine synthase (MTR), which requires MeCbl. Abnormalities in AdoCbl synthesis designated cblA (MMAA) and cblB (MMAb) lead to impaired methylmalonyl CoA mutase (MUT) activity and result in methylmalonic acidemia. Different forms of the disorder have been classified according to complementation groups of cells in vitro: cblC (MMACHC), cblD (MMADHC), cblE (MTRR)and cblF (LMBRD1). Children from these groups have methylmalonic aciduria and homocystinuria.
Test Details
Test Code: 2120
Special Notes: All exons of these nine genes are examined by NGS. Exonic variants and intronic variants within 20bp of the exon/intron boundary will be reported. This massively parallel sequence analysis (MitomeNGS®) will not detect genomic structural rearrangements (e.g. deletions, duplications, inversions, etc.), large insertion mutations (e.g. ALU mediated insertion, etc), and mutations within the promoter or deep intronic regions. Mutations and novel variants are confirmed by Sanger sequencing.

Sequence Analysis for the eight genes in Cobalamin Metabolism Panel by Massively Parallel Sequencing (MitomeNGS) can be ordered separately: TCN2 (#3965), MMAA (#3575), MMAB (#3580), MMACHC (#3440), MMADHC (#3885), MTRR (#2565), LMBRD1 (#2560), MUT (#3585) and MTR (#2050).
