DuplicαRealTime Gilbert’s syndrome Genotyping Kit is an in vitro diagnostic test for the detection, by Real-Time PCR, of the nucleotide substitution 6TA/7TA of the UGT1A1 gene in human genomic DNA.
Gilbert’s syndrome is caused by decreased hepatic levels of the enzyme glucuronosyltransferase. As this enzyme is responsible for the glucuronidation (conjugation) of bilirubine in the liver, reduced activity of the glucuronosyltransferase leads to the accumulation of unconjugated bilirubin in the circulation.
It is not a rare disease: 3-10% of the population presents this condition.
