Ion AmpliSeq™ Cardiovascular Research Panel  Hide Panel Description


It can be difficult to identify specific genetic causes of cardiovascular diseases because of pleiotropy, locus heterogeneity and accessibility of gene tests. The panel was developed as a quick, accurate and cost-effective method to identify genetic mutations associated with inherited cardiovascular defects. The panel assesses 404 genes known to harbor mutations affecting cardiovascular functioning. In addition to targeting all coding regions, an additional 94 non-coding disease-causing loci are targeted, as well as special coverage of two repeat expansion regions, in genes DMPK and CACNA1A.
