Pricing Comments

We are happy to accommodate requests for testing single genes in this panel or a subset of these genes. The price will remain the list price. If desired, free reflex testing to remaining genes on panel is available. Alternatively, a single gene or subset of genes can also be ordered via our Custom Panel tool.

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

Click here for costs to reflex to whole PGnome (if original test is on PGnome Sequencing backbone).

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

Rotor syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by conjugated hyperbilirubinemia, coproporphyrinuria, and near-absent hepatic uptake of anionic diagnostic compounds (van de Steeg et al. 2012). Mild jaundice begins shortly after birth or in childhood.


Rotor syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by a concurrent complete deficiency of the major hepatic drug uptake transporters OATP1B1 and OATP1B3, encoded by SLCO1B1 and SLCO1B3 genes, respectively (van de Steeg et al. 2012). This obligate two-gene disorder represents one of the clearest examples of “digenic inheritance” in human disease (Schäffer 2013). A complete deficiency of either OATP1B1 or OATP1B3 does not cause obvious jaundice (van de Steeg et al. 2012). Genetic defects of SLCO1B1 found so far include nonsense, splicing site mutations and large deletions (Human Gene Mutation Database). Genetic defects of SLCO1B3 include large deletions and splicing site mutations (Human Gene Mutation Database).

Variants in the SLCO1B1 gene have been associated with methotrexate clearance (Ramsey et al. 2012). Variants in the SLCO1B3 gene have been associated with hepatic clearance of substrate drugs such as xenobiotics including statins, taxanes, and mycophenolic acid (Schwarz et al. 2011). However, genotype-phenotype correlations are not yet clear. Therefore, this test is NOT for SLCO1B1-associated or SLCO1B3-associated pharmacogenetic phenotypes.

Clinical Sensitivity - Sequencing with CNV PGxome

Detection rate of pathogenic variants in the SLCO1B1 and SLCO1B3 genes in a larger cohort of patients with Rotor syndrome is unavailable in the literature because documented SLCO1B1 and SLCO1B3 pathogenic variants have only been reported in limited cases. Of note, large deletions in the region of the SLCO1B1 and SLCO1B3 genes are apparently common in this disorder and may encompass both genes (van de Steeg et al. 2012).

Testing Strategy

This test is performed using Next-Gen sequencing with additional Sanger sequencing as necessary.

This panel provides 100% coverage of coding exons of the genes 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 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

Candidates for this test are patients with Rotor syndrome. Testing is also indicated for family members of patients who have known SLCO1B1 and/or SLCO1B3 mutations.
