Ion AmpliSeq™ Noonan Research Panel  Hide Panel Description

Noonan syndrome is a relatively common autosomal dominant congenital disorder with a high phenotypic variability. It is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder that belongs to the group of Rasopathy diseases, caused by mutations in genes dysregulating the RAS/MAPK pathway. The Noonan Research Gene Panel has been developed in collaboration with an European consortia composed by Marco Tartaglia(1), Jose Luis Costa (2), Kornelia Neveling and Marcel Nelen (3) . 1) Istituto Superiore di Sanità, Rome, Italy, 2) Ipatimup, Porto 3) Human Genetics, Radboud UMC Nijmegen . The panel assesses 14 genes known to be related with this disorder. A2ML1, BRAF, CBL, HRAS, KRAS, MAP2K1, MAP2K2, NRAS, PTPN11, RAF1, RIT1, SHOC2, SOS1, SPRED1. In a first study of 60 archived samples we showed that very high sensitivity and specificity are achievable.
