The percentage of congenital heart defects attributed to pathogenic variants identified in the NR2F2 gene is unknown.

The NR2F2 gene encodes a transcription factor (also called COUP-TFII) that can both activate and repress gene expression through a variety of mechanisms. NR2F2 is expressed in every human tissue tested thus far, but mice that lack this gene succumb to defects in the cardiovascular system, suggesting that this gene is important in heart development during embryogenesis (PMID: 22966133, 24702954)

Assay and technical information

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 in the transcript listed below. In addition, analysis covers the select non-coding variants specifically defined in the table below. Any variants that fall outside these regions are not analyzed. Any specific limitations in the analysis of these genes are also listed in the table below.

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.
