SCA (SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA): COMPREHENSIVE PROFILE
Test Price: ₹ 14500
Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) are autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxias of various types ranging from 1 to 40. SCA1, 2, 3, 6, 7 & 17 are caused by CAG triplet repeat expansions in different genes. SCA8 is due to an untranslated CTG repeat expansion; SCA12 is linked to an untranslated CAG repeat; SCA10 is caused by an untranslated pentanucleotide repeat. The clinical phenotypes of SCAs overlap, hence genotype has become the gold standard for diagnosis and classification.
