CLINICAL ASSOCIATIONS

Mitogen’s Anti-DPPX assay is an autoimmune diagnostic test that detects autoantibodies to dipeptidyl aminopeptidase‐like 6 (DPPX or DPP6) which is critical for the diagnosis of DPPX antibody–associated encephalitis. DPPX is primarily a brain-protein found in the plasma membrane that acts as a potassium channel regulator.
