Invitae tests that include this gene:
ALG6-CDG (CDG-Ic) is a more common cause of congenital disorders of glycosylation, however, due to the overall rarity of these disorders, the percentage of cases attributed to pathogenic variants in ALG6 is unknown.
ALG6 encodes glucosyltransferase 1, which catalyzes the addition of the first glucose residue to the growing lipid-linked oligosaccharide precursor for N-linked glycosylation of proteins (PMID: 19862844).
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.
