Factor II G20210A Mutation

Test Information

Test Name: Factor II G20210A Mutation

Performing Lab: Molecular Diagnostic

Synonyms: F II Mutat
Fac II Mut
Factor II Mutation
G20210A Mut
G20210A Mutation
Prothrombin Mut
Prothrombin Mutation
PT Mutation

Order Includes: Prothrombin G20210A Mutation
Prothrombin Mut

Turnaround Time: 7 days

Additional Interpretation: The relative risk of venous thrombosis is increased approximately two to four fold in individuals who are heterozygous for the Prothrombin 20210 G>A allele and the risk for individuals who are homozygous for the Prothrombin 20210 G>A allele is difficult to assess due to the low prevalence of this finding.

Methodology: The test is performed on the LightCycler® Instrument utilizing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the amplification of Factor II DNA recovered from clinical specimens and fluorogenic target-specific hybridization for the detection and genotyping of a single point mutation (G to A at position 20210) of the human Factor II gene.
