Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct test or proper submission of the test request
Useful for diagnosis during latent periods of acute intermittent porphyria. Porphobilinogen deaminase, also known as uroporphyrinogen I synthase, is commonly confused with uroporphyrinogen III synthase, the enzyme deficient in congenital erythropoietic porphyria (CEP). For CEP cases, order UPGC / Uroporphyrinogen III Synthase (Co-Synthase) (UPG III S), Erythrocytes.
