Clinical and functional characterization of TNNT2 mutations identified in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A key issue for cardiovascular genetic medicine is ascertaining if a putative mutation indeed causes dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). This is critically important as genetic DCM, usually presenting with advanced, life-threatening disease, may be preventable with early intervention in relatives known to carry the mutation. METHODS AND RESULTS We… (More)
