SACS c.8844delT

SACS c.8844delT

The SACS c.8844delT Novallele Genotyping Assay identifies a single nucleotide deletion within the sacsin molecular chaperone gene. Two apparent mutations of this gene cause autosomal recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS). One mutation deletes a thymine at position 6594 in the SACS gene, whereas the other mutation replaces a cytosine with a thymine at position 5254 in the SACS gene. ARSACS causes unstable sacsin protein production, which is characterized by spasticity, ataxia, amyotrophy, and dysarthria.

Product Description

The SACS c.8844delT Novallele Genotyping Assay is used to amplify and identify specific genetic polymorphisms or mutations. This assay provides scientists with a simple way to quickly genotype this locus from isolated human genomic DNA. The assay contains functionally-verified oligonucleotide primers and unlabeled probes necessary for PCR and subsequent allele identification by DNA melting. For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
