BACKGROUND: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a heterogeneous myocardial disease. Mutations appearing in several genes might be a potential cause of the disease. The aim of the study was to analyze selected exons of the sarcomeric and non-sarcomeric genes, with the purpose to identify potential candidate genetic variants and to understand etiopathogenetic mechanisms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in East Slovak patients. METHODS: This study recruited 23 unrelated patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, namely, 13 men and 10 women (mean age of 58...

BACKGROUND: Heritable cardiac sodium-channel dysfunction is associated with various arrhythmia syndromes, some predisposing to ventricular fibrillation. Phenotypic diversity among carriers of identical-by-descent mutations is often remarkable, suggesting influences of genetic modifiers. OBJECTIVE: We identified a unique SCN5A-mutation founder population with mixed clinical phenotypes and sudden cardiac death, and investigated the heritability of electromechanical traits besides the SCN5A-mutation effect...

Mutations in the SCN5A gene are linked to both the long QT syndrome 3 and Brugada syndrome with few reports describing an overlapping phenotype. We present a unique case and discuss clinical considerations of a patient concurrently exhibiting such conditions with genetic analysis confirming an SCN5A mutation.

INTRODUCTION: Inherited arrhythmias may arise from mutations in the SCN5a gene, which encodes the cardiac voltage-gated sodium channel, NaV 1.5. Mutants in NaV 1.5 result in Brugada Syndrome (BrS1), Long-QT Syndrome (LQT3), or mixed syndromes (an overlap of BrS1/LQT3). Exercise is a potential arrhythmogenic trigger in mixed syndromes. We sought to determine the effects of elevated cytosolic calcium, common during exercise, in mixed syndrome NaV 1.5 mutants. METHODS: We used whole-cell patch-clamp to assess the biophysical properties of NaV 1...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 75% of clinically definite long QT syndrome (LQTS) cases are caused by mutations in the KCNQ1, KCNH2 and SCN5A genes. Of these mutations, a small proportion (3.2-9.2%) are predicted to affect splicing. These mutations present a particular challenge in ascribing pathogenicity. METHODS: Here we report an analysis of the transcriptional consequences of two mutations, one in the KCNQ1 gene (c.781_782delinsTC) and one in the SCN5A gene (c.2437-5C>A), which are predicted to affect splicing...

INTRODUCTION: Sudden unexpected death syndrome (SUDS) is an important cause of death in young healthy adults with a high incident rate in Southeast Asia; however, there are no molecular autopsy reports about these victims. We performed a combination of both a detailed autopsy and a molecular autopsy by whole exome sequencing (WES) to investigate the cause of SUDS in Thai sudden death victims. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A detailed forensic autopsy was performed to identify the cause of death, followed by a molecular autopsy, in 42 sudden death victims who died between January 2015 and August 2015...

We describe a case of an infant presenting with intractable diarrhea who subsequently developed dilated cardiomyopathy, for whom a diagnosis was not initially achieved despite extensive clinical testing, including panel-based genetic testing. Research-based whole genome sequences of the proband and both parents were analyzed by the SAVANNA pipeline, a variant prioritization strategy integrating features of variants, genes, and phenotypes, which was implemented using publicly available tools. Although the intestinal morphological abnormalities characteristic of congenital tufting enteropathy (CTE) were not observed in the initial clinical gastrointestinal tract biopsies of the proband, an intronic variant, EPCAM c...

BACKGROUND: TheSCN5Agene encodes the α subunit of the cardiac voltage-gated sodium channel, NaV1.5. The missense mutation, D1275N, has been associated with a range of unusual phenotypes associated with reduced NaV1.5 function, including cardiac conduction disease and dilated cardiomyopathy. Curiously, the reported biophysical properties ofSCN5A-D1275N channels vary with experimental system.Methods and Results:First, using a human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cell-based heterologous expression system, theSCN5A-D1275N channels showed similar maximum sodium conductance but a significantly depolarizing shift of activation gate (+10 mV) compared to wild type...

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Cardiac channelopathies arise by mutations in genes encoding ion channel subunits. One example is Brugada Syndrome (BrS), which causes arrhythmias and sudden death. BrS is often associated with mutations in SCN5A, encoding Nav 1.5, the α subunit of the major cardiac voltage-gated sodium channel. This channel forms a protein complex including one or two associated β subunits as well as other proteins. RESULTS: We analyzed regulation of Nav 1...

PURPOSE: Readthrough of nonsense mutation are used as gene-specific treatment in some genetic disease. Response to readthrough treatment is determined by readthrough efficiency of various nonsense mutations. In this manuscript, we aimed to explore the harmful effect of nonsense mutation suppressions. METHODS: HEK293 cells were transfected with two SCN5A (encode cardiac Na+ channel) nonsense mutations, p.R1623X and p.S1812X. We applied two readthrough-enhancing methods (either aminoglycosides or by a siRNA targeting eukaryotic release factor eRF3a (a GTPase that binds eRF1)) to suppress these SCN5A nonsense mutations...

Cardiac conduction disease is a primary cause of sudden cardiac death. Sodium voltage‑gated channel‑α subunit 5 (SCN5A) mutations have been reported to underlie a variety of inherited arrhythmias. Numerous disease‑causing mutations of SCN5A have been identified in patients with ≥10 different conditions, including type 3 long‑QT syndrome and Brugada syndrome. The present study investigated a family with a history of arrhythmia, with the proband having a history of arrhythmia and syncope. Whole‑exome sequencing was applied in order to detect the disease‑causing mutation in this family, and Sanger sequencing was used to confirm the co‑segregation among the family members...

Brugada syndrome is a primary arrhythmic syndrome that accounts for 20% of all sudden cardiac death cases in individuals with a structurally normal heart. Pathogenic variants associated with Brugada syndrome have been identified in over 19 genes, with SCN5A as a pivotal gene accounting for nearly 30% of cases. In contrast to other arrhythmogenic channelopathies (such as long QT syndrome), digenic inheritance has never been reported in Brugada syndrome. Exploring 66 cardiac genes using a new custom next-generation sequencing panel, we identified a double heterozygosity for pathogenic mutations in SCN5A and TRPM4 in a Brugada syndrome patient...

BACKGROUND: Early repolarization syndrome (ERS) may be a near-Mendelian or an oligogenic disease; however, no direct evidence has been provided to support this theory. METHODS AND RESULTS: We described a large Chinese family with nocturnal sudden cardiac death induced by ERS in most of the young male adults. One missense mutation (p.Q1916R) was found in the major subunit of the L-type calcium channel gene CACNA1C by the direct sequencing of candidate genes. A concomitant gain-of-function variant in the sodium channel gene SCN5A (p...

BACKGROUND: Congenital long QT syndrome (LQTS) is an inherited, potentially fatal arrhythmogenic disorder. At least 16 genes have been implicated in LQTS; the yield of genetic analysis of 3 genes (KCNQ1, KCNH2, and SCN5A) is about 70%, with KCNQ1 mutations accounting for ∼50% of positive cases. LQTS is mostly inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. Systemic analysis of LQTS has not been previously conducted in a population with a high degree of consanguinity. OBJECTIVES: To describe the clinical and molecular profiles of LQTS in the highly consanguineous Saudi population...

Aims: Selective inhibition of cardiac late sodium current (INaL) is an emerging target in the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. We investigated the electrophysiological effects of GS-458967 (GS967), a potent, selective inhibitor of INaL, in an overlap syndrome model of both gain and loss of sodium channel function, comprising cardiomyocytes derived from both human SCN5A-1795insD+/- induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC-CMs) and mice carrying the homologous mutation Scn5a-1798insD+/-...

BACKGROUND: Long QT syndrome type 3 (LQT3) accounts for 5%-10% of long QT syndrome and results from gain-of-function mutations in the SCN5A-encoded sodium channel. Approximately 2% of healthy individuals host rare SCN5A variants of uncertain significance (VUS). Distinction of true LQT3-causative mutations from background genetic noise is essential. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the use of the lidocaine attenuation test (LAT) in evaluating patients with possible LQT3...

REVIEW
Gerald J Holtmann, Alexander C Ford, Nicholas J Talley
Traditionally, irritable bowel syndrome has been considered to be a disorder with no known underlying structural or biochemical explanation, but this concept is likely to be outdated. In this Review we challenge the widely accepted view that irritable bowel syndrome is an unexplained brain-gut disorder. There is epidemiological evidence that, in a major subset of patients, gastrointestinal symptoms arise first and only later do incident mood disorders occur. Additionally, possible mechanisms for gut-brain dysfunction have been identified, suggesting primary gut disturbances might be the underlying cause in a subgroup...
