TMLHE Exon 2 Deletion Analysis
Test Information: Confirmation of Clinical Diagnosis
Test Details
Test Code: 2513
Special Notes: Deletions involving exon 2 of the TMLHE gene are the most common cause of TMLHE deficiency. This analysis will detect hemizygous/homozygous and heterozygous deletions of exon 2. It is a quick and inexpensive screening for exon 2 deletions.

NOTE: TMLHE Biochemical Analysis (test codes #4135, #4145 or #4155) should be performed prior to molecular analysis. Deletion/Duplication Analysis (test code #2513) should be performed prior to or concurrent with TMLHE Sequence Analysis (test code #2510). Deletion/duplication analysis analyzes for deletions involving exon 2 of the TMLHE gene which are the most common cause of TMLHE deficiency.
Technical Information
Methodology: Regular PCR and quantitative PCR are performed. Copy number of exon 2 is evaluated by a combination of these two methodologies.

Technical limitation:

This analysis will detect large deletions involving exon 2 only. It cannot delineate breakpoints or the number of exons involved in deletions. Thus, a positive result warrants further study, such as a microarray, in order to delineate breakpoints.
