GYS1

Polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM1)

 

The disease causes muscle problems in horses during excercise, such as pelvic paralysis and severe muscle damage. 

GYS1 gene test is recommended to be done for example before selling or buying a horse. It works as an assurance for the buyer that the horse has been checked for serious risk genes and associated hereditary illnesses. This test is also a good tool for breeding: you can make sure your horse is not carrying this harmful risk gene to pass on to its foals.

We will deliver the results within 2 to 3 weeks after receiving the sample.

The price for GYS1 gene test is 75 € (VAT included)
