RECQL4 Sequence Analysis
Test Code: 6122

This test can only be performed if there is a previously identified familial mutation.

RECQL4 Sequence Analysis
Test Information: Confirmation of Clinical Diagnosis, Carrier Testing
Test Details
Test Code: 6121
Test Includes: Sequencing of the entire 6.5 kb genomic region containing the RECQL4 gene. Due to the complex sequence context of this gene, only partial sequence analysis of intron 12 will be performed but includes the consensus splice site regions.

Special Notes: If the mutation to be tested in this individual is one previously identified in an affected family member, please order test (#6122). Please see detailed requirements under this test code.

There are two GeneReviews for RECQL4 gene: Baller-Gerold Syndrome and Rothmund-Thomson Syndrome.
