Test ID F5NGS F5 Gene, Next-Generation Sequencing, Varies


Advisory Information


If bleeding is the indication for testing, genetic testing for factor V deficiency (F5D) should only be considered if there is an isolated reduction of factor V activity in plasma using a specific prothrombin (PT)-based factor V assay(1) and acquired causes of a low factor V are excluded.

 

If thrombophilia is the indication for testing, the vast majority (approximately 95%) of individuals with thrombophilia due to hereditary APC resistance have a specific point alteration in the F5 gene called factor V Leiden (c.1601G>A, p.Arg534Gln; historically known as "R506Q" or "1691G>A"), which can be assayed directly and more cost-effectively by targeted alteration testing. If testing for factor V Leiden is desired instead of full-gene sequencing, order F5DNA / Factor V Leiden (R506Q) Mutation, Blood.

Useful For

Genetic confirmation of factor V deficiency with the identification of an alteration in the F5 gene known or suspected to cause the condition

 

Carrier testing for close family members of an individual with a factor V deficiency diagnosis

 

This test is not intended to evaluate for the factor V Leiden mutation.

 

This test is not intended for prenatal diagnosis.

Genetics Test Information

This test detects pathogenic alterations in the F5 gene to delineate the underlying molecular defect in a patient with a laboratory diagnosis of coagulation factor V deficiency. This test may also detect rare alterations in F5 that cause activated protein C (APC) resistance, resulting in thrombophilia.

 

The gene target for this test is:

Gene name (transcript): F5 (GRCh37 [hg19] NM_000130)

Chromosomal location: 1q23-24

Testing Algorithm

If the patient appears to have a bleeding disorder, the clinical workup for factor V deficiency (F5D) begins with special coagulation testing for factor V activity. See FACTV / Coagulation Factor V Activity Assay, Plasma.

 

Genetic testing for F5D is indicated if:

-Factor V activity is reduced and acquired causes of FV deficiency have been excluded

-The FVIII activity is normal (low factor V levels with concurrently low factor VIII levels suggest combined deficiency of factor V and FVIII [F5F8D], a condition with a genetic etiology different from that of F5D)

 

If the patient appears to have thrombophilia, the results of an activated protein C (APC) resistance assay indicate presence of resistance to APC, and factor V Leiden genotype does not correlate with the severity of thrombophilia or clinical presentation, full-gene sequencing of F5 may be warranted. If testing for factor V Leiden is desired instead of full-gene sequencing, please order "Factor V Leiden (R506Q) Mutation, Blood" (Mayo test ID F5DNA).
