  • Published 2008 in Nature Clinical Practice Cardiovascular Medicine


Studies have suggested that atrial fibrillation (AF) might in part be genetically inherited, but the identification of individuals who carry mutations linked to AF has been difficult. Darbar et al. have discovered a haplotype that is asso ciated with AF, and they have shown that individuals who carry this haplotype can be identified by a prolongation of the… (More)
