To test the hypothesis that actin dysfunction leads to heart failure, patients with hereditary idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC) were examined for mutations in the cardiac actin gene (ACTC). Missense mutations in ACTC that cosegregate with IDC were identified in two unrelated families. Both mutations affect universally conserved amino acids in domains of actin that attach to Z bands and intercalated discs. Coupled with previous data showing that dystrophin mutations also cause dilated… Expand
MUTATIONS IN SARCOMERE PROTEIN GENES AS A CAUSE OF DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY
A BSTRACT Background The molecular basis of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, a primary myocardial disorder that results in reduced contractile function, is largely unknown. Some cases of familialExpand
Mutations in the Human δ-Sarcoglycan Gene in Familial and Sporadic Dilated Cardiomyopathy, a Disease of the Cytoskeleton and Sarcolemma
TLDR
A large number of cases are familial (FDCM), with the remainder appearing sporadically, and autosomal dominant inheritance is the most common form of FDCM, although X-linked disease is also well described. Expand
What makes the heart fail? New insights from defective genes
TLDR
Recognition of dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathies as allelic disorders has provided the opportunity to identify genotype‐phenotype relationships and to gain new insight into pathways leading to cardiac failure and hypertrophy. Expand
α-cardiac actin is a novel disease gene in familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
TLDR
The alpha-cardiac actin gene (ACTC) is identified as a novel disease gene in a pedigree suffering from familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (FHC), and linkage analyses of plausible candidate genes highly expressed in the adult human heart identified ACTC as the most likely disease gene. Expand
Titin mutations as the molecular basis for dilated cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
Observations suggest that titin mutations may cause DCM in a subset of the patients, and one of them was a nonsense mutation presumably encoding for a truncated nonfunctional molecule. Expand
Novel Cardiac Troponin T Mutation as a Cause of Familial Dilated Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
A novel missense mutation in the cardiac troponin T gene is identified by direct sequencing and confirmed by endonuclease restriction analysis in a large family with FDCM and appears that the phenotype, whether it be hypertrophy or dilatation, is determined by the specific mutation rather than the gene.

Classifying Cardiac Actin Mutations Associated With Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
This work suggests the classification of ACTC1 mutations based on the location of the resulting amino acid change in actin into three main groups: those affecting only the binding site of the myosin molecular motor, termed M-class mutations, and those affecting both theMyosin- and Tm-binding sites, called MT- class mutations. Expand
Hypertrophy: Clinical Relevance of Genotype
TLDR
The two major genes are those encoding β-myosin heavy chain (MYH7) and cardiac myosin binding protein C (MYBPC3) and the clinical relevance of these observations will be discussed. Expand
Gene mutations in adult Japanese patients with dilated cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
Although cases of adult patients with DCM caused by mutations of the genes encoding sarcomeric or cytoskeletal proteins of cardiomyocytes are infrequent in Japan, it may be advisable to screen older DCM patients for MYBPC3 mutations, and male patients with familial DCM for dystrophin mutations. Expand
Clinical and genetic characteristics of α cardiac actin gene mutations in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
TLDR
The clinical and genetic characteristics of ACTC mutations in 206 consecutive patients with HCM are reported and relatives of probands who carriedACTC mutations are physically and genetically investigated. Expand

Familial dilated cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
A diversity of genetic etiologies in DCM explains why patients sometimes exhibit additional clinical manifestations, including defects in the conduction system resulting in arrhythmias, skeletal muscle abnormalities, deafness, and endocrinologic disease. Expand
Evidence for a dystrophin missense mutation as a cause of X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
A novel missense mutation in exon 9 of dystrophin causing an abnormality at H1 leads to the cardiospecific phenotype of XLCM. Expand
Mapping a cardiomyopathy locus to chromosome 3p22-p25.
TLDR
Haplotype analyses indicate that a gene causing DCM associated with rhythm and conduction abnormalities is located on chromosome 3p, and represent the first step toward disease gene identification. Expand
Management of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
Technological developments in implantable defibrillators and pacemakers have provided new therapeutic options for patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and deepened understanding of the disorder and have suggested new approaches to the assessment of prognosis. Expand
The frequency of familial dilated cardiomyopathy in a series of patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.

Dilated cardiomyopathy was found to be familial in at least one in five of the patients in this study, a considerably higher percentage than in previous reports. Expand
Gene mapping of familial autosomal dominant dilated cardiomyopathy to chromosome 10q21-23.
TLDR
It is concluded that a new locus for pure autosomal dominant FDCM exists, and that this gene is localized to a 9 cM region of 10q21-10q23, and the search for the disease causing gene and the responsible mutation is ongoing. Expand

This study determines the proportion of familial cases of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy in a retrospective series of 169 patients to determine the role of genetic factors. Expand

TLDR
Idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy is a common cause of congestive heart failure and specific heart muscle diseases occur with much less frequency. Expand

TLDR
Two recombinant phages that contain cardiac muscle actin gene were isolated from a human DNA library and their structures were determined, indicating that they are derived from their ancestor gene at a relatively recent time in evolutionary development. Expand
