Genomic Unity® Motor Neuron Disorders Analysis
Motor neuron disorders affect the nerves that control the body’s voluntary muscles. They are characterized by progressive muscle weakness and atrophy, spasticity and overactive tendon reflexes.
Genomic Unity® Motor Neuron Disorders Analysis is an effective test for the genetic cause of muscle weakness in patients with clinical symptoms consistent with the following inherited motor neuron disorders:
As well as related disorders.
Order this test when the patient presents with clinical symptoms consistent with motor neuron disorders like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, hereditary spastic paraplegia or spinal muscular atrophy and you'd like the option to reflex up to Genomic Unity® Whole Genome Analysis.
- Sequencing analysis of motor neuron disorder associated genes
- Del/dup analysis of motor neuron disorder associated genes
- Frontotemporal dementia and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (FTD-ALS) STR analysis: C9ORF72
- Spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy STR analysis: AR

99.7% positive predictive value
Note that the SMN2 gene is only analyzed for determination of copy number for assessment of severity of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).
96% clinical sensitivity
Short tandem repeats:
Due to the variable nature of repetitive sequence and sequence specific differences in detection, repeat evaluation and orthogonal confirmation is performed on a case-by-case basis. Reportable pathogenic or intermediate repeat expansions may be reported with or without repeat count.
