Amyloidosis, Transthyretin-Associated Familial, DNA Sequence, Blood
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
All 4 exons of the thransthyretin (TTR) gene are amplified by PCR and then subjected to direct DNA sequence analysis. (Bergen RH 3rd, Zeldenrust SR, Butz ML, et al: Identification of transthyretin variants by sequential proteomic and genomic analysis. Clin Chem 2004;50:1544-1552)
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
