Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a group of inherited diseases of the motor nerves that causes muscle weakness and atrophy.
Genes2Me offers SMA Genetic Analysis based on the MLPA technology for both Prenatal/ Postnatal cases.
The SMN (survival of motor neuron) 1 & 2 gene has been identified as SMA causing gene
The findings of copy number changes of exon7 &/or exon8 of SMN1 and SMN2 genes confirms the diagnosis of SMA. The assay detects copy number changes of exons 7 and 8 of SMN1 and SMN2 genes.
SMA can lead to severe conditions like weakening of leg muscles, scoliosis and respiratory ailments when left undiagnosed on time.
