Test ID: GA2P    
Glutaric Aciduria Type II Gene Panel, Varies

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Follow up for abnormal biochemical results suggestive of glutaric acidemia type II


Establishing a molecular diagnosis for patients with glutaric acidemia type II


Identifying variants within genes known to be associated with glutaric acidemia, allowing for predictive testing of at-risk family members

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct genetic test or proper submission of the test request

This test utilizes next-generation sequencing to detect single nucleotide and copy number variants in 8 genes associated with glutaric aciduria: ETFA, ETFB, ETFDH, FLAD1, SLC52A1, SLC52A2, SLC52A3, TANGO2. See Targeted Genes and Methodology Details for Glutaric Aciduria Type II Gene Panel in Special Instructions and Method Description for additional details.


Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with diagnosis, prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling for glutaric aciduria type II.


Additional first-tier testing may be considered/recommended. For more information see Ordering Guidance.
