Ion AmpliSeq™ Neurological Research Panel  Hide Panel Description


Research to identify specific genetic causes of neurological disorders is important but can be difficult because of pleiotropy, locus heterogeneity and accessibility of gene tests. This panel was developed as a quick, accurate and cost effective method to identify genetic mutations associated with inherited neurological disorders. The panel assesses 751 genes known to harbor mutations affecting the functioning of the brain and nervous system. In addition to targeting all coding regions, an additional 101 non-coding disease-causing loci are targeted, as well as 14 repeat-expansion regions in genes AFF2, AR, ATN1, ATXN7, ATXN8OS, ATXN3, CACNA1A, CSTB, DMPK, HTT, JPH3, PABPN1, PPP2R2B, TBP.
