Pricing Comments

Our favored testing approach is exome based NextGen sequencing with CNV analysis. This will allow cost effective reflexing to PGxome or other exome based tests. However, if full gene Sanger sequencing is desired for STAT turnaround time, insurance, or other reasons, please see link below for Test Code, pricing, and turnaround time information. If the Sanger option is selected, CNV detection may be ordered through Test #600.

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

The Sanger Sequencing method for this test is NY State approved.

Turnaround Time

18 days on average for standard orders or 13 days 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

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a primary disease of the cardiac muscle characterized by idiopathic hypertrophy of the left ventricle, although hypertrophy of the right ventricle may occur occasionally (Fifer and Vlahakes Circulation 117:429-439, 2008). HCM is distinguished by an extensive clinical variability between individuals with regards to the age of onset, pattern and extent of hypertrophy, and prognosis. Symptoms include dyspnea, exercise intolerance, chest pain, palpitations, arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, syncope, and sudden death (Maron et al. N Engl J Med 316:780-789, 1987). Additional features include left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, which is associated with increased risk for heart failure and cardiovascular death (Ommen et al. J Am Coll Cardiol 46:470-476, 2005). HCM affects 1 in 500 people worldwide (Maron et al. Circulation 92:785-789, 1995).

Genetics

HCM is a heterogeneous genetic disease that is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. It is caused by variants in various genes, most of which encode sarcomeric proteins. Defects in twelve genes, including TNNI3 (Kimura et al. Nat Genet 16:379-382, 1997) accounted for approximately 60% of all HCM cases. Variants were identified in both familial and sporadic cases, with similar distribution. Variants identified in sporadic cases were either nonpenetrant or occurred de novo. Some patients with severe phenotype were shown to have more than one variant, either in two different genes or in the same gene (Richard et al. Circulation 107:2227-2232, 2003). All documented causative variants in TNNI3 in patients with HCM are missense variants and small deletions. In addition to HCM, TNNI3 variants have been implicated in familial restrictive cardiomyopathy (Mogensen et al. J Clin Invest 111:209-216, 2003) and dilated cardiomyopathy (Carballo et al. Circ Res 105:375-382, 2009).

The TNNI3 gene encodes the troponin I subunit, which is one of the 3 subunits that form the troponin complex of the thin filaments of striated muscles. Troponin I is exclusively expressed in cardiac muscle.

Clinical Sensitivity - Sequencing with CNV PGxome

This test will detect variants in ~5% of patients with HCM (Cirino and Ho, GeneReviews, 2009). Sensitivity of this test for RCM and DCM is not known.

Testing Strategy

This test provides full coverage of all coding exons of the TNNI3 gene plus 10 bases of flanking noncoding DNA in all available transcripts along with other non-coding regions in which pathogenic variants have been identified at PreventionGenetics or reported elsewhere. We define full coverage as >20X NGS reads or Sanger sequencing. PGnome panels typically provide slightly increased coverage over the PGxome equivalent. PGnome sequencing panels have the added benefit of additional analysis and reporting of deep intronic regions (where applicable).

Dependent on the sequencing backbone selected for this testing, discounted reflex testing to any other similar backbone-based test is available (i.e., PGxome panel to whole PGxome; PGnome panel to whole PGnome).

Indications for Test

Patients with symptoms suggestive of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy, and dilated cardiomyopathy. This test may also be considered for the reproductive partners of individuals who carry pathogenic variants in TNNI3.
