Uroporphyrinogen III Synthase (Co-Synthase) (UPG III S), Erythrocytes
NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.
Ruling in or ruling out congenital erythropoietic porphyria
Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct test or proper submission of the test request
This test measures uroporphyrinogen (UPG) III synthase to confirm congenital erythropoietic porphyria. It does not measure UPG I synthase, the enzyme deficient in acute intermittent porphyria (AIP). For AIP (and UPG I synthase), order PBGD_ / Porphobilinogen (PBG) Deaminase, Erythrocytes.
Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
The following algorithms are available in Special Instructions:
-Porphyria (Acute) Testing Algorithm
-Porphyria (Cutaneous) Testing Algorithm
Special Instructions and Forms Describes specimen collection and preparation information, test algorithms, and other information pertinent to test. Also includes pertinent information and consent forms to be used when requesting a particular test
