Nuclear Mitochondrial Genes Panel

This product is only meant for customers who already purchased a Dante Genome Test

The genetic variants analyzed in this panel are closely related to or, potentially, the cause of major mitochondrial conditions
Nuclear Mitochondrial Genes Panel is used to identify nuclear genetic variants associated with mitochondrial diseases, a group of rare genetic disorders that affect the energy-producing organelles in cells. Mitochondrial diseases can affect any organ or tissue in the body and can cause a wide range of symptoms, including muscle weakness, developmental delay and cardiomyopathies. Mitochondrial diseases caused by nuclear gene mutations can impair mitochondrial function, metabolism and stability.
This panel is designed for individuals with a family history of mitochondrial diseases caused by nuclear mutations or individuals with symptoms of the conditions, such as muscle weakness, developmental delay and cardiomyopathies. Genetic testing can confirm a diagnosis, provide information on disease severity and progression and inform treatment and management decisions. Testing can also inform family planning decisions and provide reassurance for unaffected family members.

The analysis takes into consideration the mutation of germline DNA, it investigates SNP and Indel mutations up to 150 bp.
