Test Overview
Test Methodology

The coding exons and flanking consensus splice sites of the SERPINE1 gene are amplified using specific primers, and bidirectionally sequenced using a fluorescent method.

Test Usage

Analysis for the presence of sequence variants in the SERPINE1 gene (OMIM: 73360) in patients with a phenotype consistent with Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 deficiency (OMIM:613329).

Reference Range *

*Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.

Interpretive report provided.

* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.

Test Limitations

This assay will not detect large deletions in the SERPINE1 gene or deep intronic variants outside the region sequenced in the SERPINE1 gene.
