Pricing Comments

This test is also offered via our exome backbone with CNV detection (click here). The exome-based test may be higher priced, but permits reflex to the entire exome or to any other set of clinically relevant genes.

An additional 25% charge will be applied to STAT orders. STAT orders are prioritized throughout the testing process.

Testing run on PG-Select capture probes does not include exome-wide CNV analysis. Reflex is available to PGxome or an exome-based panel, or you can use this gene list to create a custom panel (click here).

Turnaround Time

3 weeks on average for standard orders or 2 weeks on average for STAT orders.

Please note: Once the testing process begins, an Estimated Report Date (ERD) range will be displayed in the portal. This is the most accurate prediction of when your report will be complete and may differ from the average TAT published on our website. About 85% of our tests will be reported within or before the ERD range. We will notify you of significant delays or holds which will impact the ERD. Learn more about turnaround times here.

Clinical Features and Genetics

Clinical Features

Alpha-mannosidosis (OMIM# 248500) is an inheritable lysosomal storage disorder characterized by facial and skeletal abnormalities, hearing impairment, immune deficiency, and intellectual disability (Malm et al. Orphanet J Rare Dis 3:21, 2008; Malm et al. GeneReviews, 2001). Neurological abnormalities include gradual impairment of mental functions and speech, motor function disturbances and periods of psychiatric symptoms. Minor features include ocular changes and hepatosplenomegaly. After a normal birth, clinical symptoms develop progressively and the severity is markedly variable from early death to an asymptomatic form in adulthood. Diagnosis of the disease is made by measuring acid alpha-mannosidase activity in leukocytes or other nucleated cells.


Alpha-mannosidosis is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by deficiency of lysosomal alpha-mannosidase encoded by the MAN2B1 gene (Berg et al. Am J Hum Genet 64:77-88, 1999). Lysosomal alpha-mannosidase is required for the catabolism of N-linked carbohydrates released during glycoprotein turnover in the lysosomes. Genetic aberrations throughout the MAN2B1 gene include missense, nonsense, splicing mutations and small deletion/insertions. Large deletions within the MAN2B1 gene have also been reported but are relatively uncommon (Human Gene Mutation Database). Most mutations are private. The missense mutation c.2248C>T (p.Arg750Trp) in exon 18, accounting for more than 30% of pathogenic alleles, is most frequent among Alpha-mannosidosis patients in European populations (Berg et al. Am J Hum Genet 64:77-88, 1999; Malm et al., 2008).

Clinical Sensitivity - Sequencing with CNV PG-Select

DNA sequencing can detect 98% of disease-causing MAN2B1 mutations in patients who have been subjected to biochemical pre-screening (Nilssen et al. Eur J Hum Genet 19(7), 2011).

Testing Strategy

This test provides full coverage of all coding exons of the MAN2B1 gene, plus ~10 bases of flanking noncoding DNA. We define full coverage as >20X NGS reads or Sanger sequencing.

Indications for Test

Candidates for this test are patients with alpha-mannosidosis. Testing is also indicated for family members of patients who have known MAN2B1 mutations. This test may also be considered for the reproductive partners of individuals who carry pathogenic variants in MAN2B1.
