Test ID: MSH2Z    
MSH2 Gene, Full Gene Analysis, Varies

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

Bidirectional sequence analysis is performed to test for the presence of a variant in all coding regions and intron/exon boundaries of the MSH2 gene.(Unpublished Mayo method)

 

Additionally, array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) is used to test for the presence of large deletions and duplications in the MSH2 gene and the 3' end of the TACSTD1/EPCAM gene.(Aradhya S, Lewis R, Bonaga T, et al: Exon-level array CGH in a large clinical cohort demonstrates increased sensitivity of diagnostic testing for Mendelian disorders. Genet Med. 2012;14[6]:594-603)

No

Day(s) Performed Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Varies

Report Available The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.

14 to 20 days

Performing Laboratory Location Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test
