The FKRP gene is associated with autosomal recessive muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy type A5 (MDDGA5) (MedGen UID:461763), type B5 (MDDGB5) (MedGen UID:335764), and type C5 (MDDGC5) (MedGen UID:339580), and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) (MedGen UID:2880).

Invitae tests that include this gene:
Pathogenic variants in FKRP cause an estimated 4% of clinical cases of LGMD and 3-8% of clinical cases of Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy. A higher percentage occurs in certain Northern European populations due to the presence of a founder mutation. Pathogenic variants in FKRP cause an unknown percentage of clinical cases of DCM.
FKRP encodes the Fukutin-related protein, a Golgi-localized protein with a role in post-translational modification of dystroglycan.
Invitae is a College of American Pathologists (CAP)-accredited and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-certified clinical diagnostic laboratory performing full-gene sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis using next-generation sequencing technology (NGS).
Our sequence analysis covers clinically important regions of each gene, including coding exons, +/- 10 base pairs of adjacent intronic sequence, and select noncoding variants. Our assay provides a Q30 quality-adjusted mean coverage depth of 350x (50x minimum, or supplemented with additional analysis). Variants classified as pathogenic or likely pathogenic are confirmed with orthogonal methods, except individual variants that have high quality scores and previously validated in at least ten unrelated samples.
Our analysis detects most intragenic deletions and duplications at single exon resolution. However, in rare situations, single-exon copy number events may not be analyzed due to inherent sequence properties or isolated reduction in data quality. If you are requesting the detection of a specific single-exon copy number variation, please contact Client Services before placing your order.
