  • The Cardiac sodium channel gene SCN5A plays a critical role in cardiac electrophysiology and its mutations, either gain- or loss-of-functions, are associated with lethal arrhythmias. In this study, we investigated the effect of overexpression of SCN5A on the cardiac phenotype in a transgenic mouse model (TG-WT L10). Compared to NTG mice, heart rate, QRS duration, and QT intervals remained unchanged in TG-WT mice. Moreover, no spontaneous ventricular arrhythmias were detected in TG-WT hearts… CONTINUE READING
