IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Gene Anomaly, Mutation, PRX
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify mutations in the periaxin (PRX) gene, located at chromosome 19q13.1-q13.2, which encodes for the protein periaxin, required for the maintenance of myelin; research suggests that it helps to stabilize the myelin. This genetic mutation has been identified in patients with demyelinating peripheral neuropathy (demyelinating Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4) and with Dejerine-Sottas neuropathy.
