What is an ACTN3 Alpha-Actinin-3 (Sports Gene) Test?

Genetics is an amazing subject, and many athletes who participate in various types of rough and tough sports have unique genetic make-ups. A genetic test known as the ACTN3-genotyping-Sports-Gene test is performed on athletes to determine the roles played by the sports gene. It is worth noting that ACTN3 is responsible for the production of alpha-actinin-3, which is found in fast twitch muscle fibres. The subjects will be asked to perform exercises on a high-tech knee machine to determine their genetic makeup.

Why it is done?

Researchers and physicians have concluded that certain genetic markers in muscle fibre are responsible for strength, endurance, and extreme reflex. Individuals who participate in athletics and other muscle flexing sports can find out if they have the required ACTN3 protein in the muscle fibre responsible for quick activities by submitting blood samples for analysis. Because there is growing evidence of genetic influences on athletic performance, physiotherapists, coaches, and others recommend ACTN3 blood testing. These tests will determine whether the athlete has endurance protein. When physicians analyse these proteins, they can easily judge a person's strength and weakness based on their family history and tree.

What is the procedure for an ACTN3 Alpha-Actinin-3 (Sports Gene) Test?

This procedure is very simple, and patients are only required to stay in the lab for a few minutes. While extracting blood from the patient's arm, lab technicians will use a sterilised or new syringe and will send the blood for further investigation. It is a stress-free procedure, and patients may experience temporary dizziness, pain, or bruising. Children can also submit blood samples to their local diagnostic centre to determine which genes are responsible for their strength and endurance. A person can find out if he has ACTN3 protein in his muscles by giving a unit of blood.

How does one prepare for the test? 

The ACTN3 gene encodes alpha-actinin-3, a muscle protein. There are two types of genes, one inherited from each parent, and these genes play a significant role in the lives of athletes. Individuals who intend to give blood samples for genetic testing should select a reputable and well-known blood diagnostics centre. Typically, the blood report is delivered seven to eight days after the test. It is a risk-free and safe procedure, and patients are only required to spend a few minutes in the lab.
