GP1BA mutation screen for Platelet / Pseudo VWD

Analysis of the GP1BA gene by PCR amplification and sequencing of the coding region and splice junctions.
Clinical details: 
Platelet-type VWD or pseudo-VWD is a rare autosomal dominant bleeding disorder caused by mutations in the GP1BA gene. Mutations result in enhanced binding of VWF to the platelet GPIb receptor with the subsequent removal of VWF from the circulation, particularly the larger multimers.
