Basic Genetic Knowledge
1. what is a gene ?
In general terms, a gene is a segment of nucleic acid that, taken as a whole, specifies a trait. All organisms have many genes corresponding to many different biological traits, some of which are immediately visible, such as eye color or number of limbs, and some of which are not, such as blood type or increased risk for specific diseases, or the thousands of basic biochemical processes that comprise life.
2. genes and diseases
Both environmental and genetic factors have roles in the development of any disease. A genetic disorder is a disease caused by abnormalities in an individual’s genetic material (genome). Some genetic disorders are the direct result of a mutation in one gene or at one point. In most cases , no single gene has the yes/no power to say whether a person has a disease or not. It is likely that more than one mutation is required before the disease is manifest, and a number of genes may each make a subtle contribution to a persons susceptibility to a disease; genes may also affect how a person reacts to environmental factors. Genes and diseases have a complex relationship. Genetic testing allows you to know details of individual’s genetic information and the risk of falling illness in the future. Therefore, gene test make the human beings pass on genetic disorders or fatal diseases and take effective measures to prevent diseases in advance.
3. What is gene testing? How does it work?
Genetic testing is a technology for testing personal DNA genetic polymorphism and genotypes by testing the cells extracted from human blood, other body fluids or tissue. For some types of gene tests, researchers design short pieces of DNA called probes, whose sequences are complementary to the mutated sequences. These probes will seek their complement among the three billion base pairs of an individuals genome. If the mutated sequence is present in the patients genome, the probe will bind to it and flag the mutation. Another type of DNA testing involves comparing the sequence of DNA bases in a patients gene to a normal version of the gene. Cost of testing can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars, depending on the sizes of the genes and the numbers of mutations tested.
Genetic testing has two main objectives, one is disease diagnosis, for example, the diagnosis of leukemia classification have to use related genetic testing. The other is disease prevention, to test the genotype and certain genetic polymorphism of healthy people, and then analysis the possible risk between genes and disease in order to give proper guidance to people and try to avoid diseases.
4. gene test and health
Gene tests are used to clarify a diagnosis and direct a physician toward appropriate treatments, while others allow families to avoid having children with devastating diseases or identify people at high risk for conditions that may be preventable. Gene test that will provide doctors with a simple diagnostic test for a common iron-storage disease, transforming it from a usually fatal condition to a treatable one. According the unique gene test result, you can create non-copied targeted disease prevention or treatment program. Diseases is like as "land mines" on the road of life. It is gene test that make markers on those "land mines" so that you can lead a healthy and happy life.
All in all, Predictive genetic testing, join the health insurance for consumers, is a positive and effective health care measure.
5、gene test and the promising future of children
The research indicated that there are as many as 2.1 million different gene sequences among different people. The diversity determines the unique individual. Genetic testing, showing you your own potential talent, make rational decision for your lifestyle which fits into your own characteristics. Some important strategic guidance for giving full play to the unique advantages and accomplishing extraordinary achievements result from the gene test of the child.
Decoding life, Cherish being health
Genes are the functional DNA fragments with genetic information, which is the password for life. recording and transmission of genetic information of life determine a persons birth, old age, sickness and death. Both internal causes-genes and external causes such as environmental factors ensure a person being a good state of physical health. Genetic testing employ gene chip checking a person’s total DNA and evaluate the possibility of falling illness. This technique make you read your genetic information as soon as possible and decoding DNA molecule(some inherited diseases ).After being aware of the crisis of physical health, you will take effective steps to change your living environment and habits.
There is no doubt that gene test make you know healthy state ahead of about 30 years. Cherishing your physical health and leading a happy life is a simple thing after taking genetic testing.
The concious shift from healing diseases to preventing them is a great change. Keep good health only until you take actions to prevent the occurrence of diseases. Test of Susceptible gene to diseases is one of effective solutions for preventing the occurrence of diseases. It can not only alter the current situation of ‘thousand-people’ identical measures but also reduce the blindness and the cost of medical treatment for preventing diseases significantly. Yuhua gene test can decode your genes vulnerable to fatal diseases and give you a description of your gene map with the help of advanced equipments and professional scientists. The result give you early warning signals of serious diseases so that you take prompt action to better your quality of life as soon as possible such as direct medical intervention, living environment ,habits and so on, thus preventing disease from occurring. Therefore, you can keep away from illness and prolong your life span.
The incidence of female breast cancer and rectal cancer have reduced 70% and 90% respectively by genetic testing technology in America. In the UK, genetic testing has emerged in the supermarket of healthy care. In addition, gene test is as popular as physical examination in some developed countries. In current, there are about 160 million hypertension patients with incidence of 18.8% in our country, which is at the first place in the world. There are also about 145M sufferer who infected hepatitis B and 40M patients suffering the diabetics with newly 1.6M cancer patients every year, In our country about 1/3 people may suffer from cancer and 1/10 may suffer from intestinal cancer. Facing with the severe situation, Yuhua will provide every customer with high quality and professional service in the field of genetic diagnosis of inherit diseases, individual health management, disease prevention, psychological and nutrition consultants, combining professional clinic treatment, shared use of global genetic resources and invited experts and well-known doctors consulting together !

Procedures of Yuhua gene test
Yuhua use the latest DNA purification method to deal with the entire sample which is simple, convenient, painless, quick and private. You can sample directly in our company. We set up a dedicated room for sampling and a professional staff is prepared to serve you. If you are so busy that you can’t come personally .you can choose to collect the sample by yourself and then complete the cards. At last you send the sampling to genetic testing Department of Shanghai Yuhua Life Science Technology Development Co., Ltd
1. Before sampling, please gargle with water so that food leavings can be clear out. When using the sampling stick of buccal mucous membrane, firstly you should take out the stick from the paper bag. When doing this, don’t let your hand touch with the stick’s head. (Please dont use the mouth wash to gargle.)
2. Put the sampling stick’s head into your mouth, and use the sponge head to scrape buccal mucous membrane on the left side of the mouth. Then use the stick to scrape up and down for about 15 times. When scraping, please turn around the stick in order to let the buccal mucous membrane cells absorbed onto the sponge. (Don’t let the stick touch the wound in your mouth when scraping.)
3. Use the same way to scrape buccal mucous membrane on the right side of the mouth for about 20 times.
4. After finishing sampling, put the sample onto one circle of the sample card and then daub within the circle (every circle of 11 mm big should adsorb 40ul). Let the sample card air-dried for 2-3 min. When the card is absolutely dry, you can write your name and sampling date onto the card and put the card into the plastic bag.
5. Mail the sampling card back to Gene Test Department of Shanghai Yuhua Life Science Technology Development Co., Ltd
