HEY2 mutations in malformed hearts.


The basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor Hey2 (gridlock) is an important determinant of mammalian heart development, but its role in human ventricular septal defects is unknown. Hey2 functions as a repressor through the bHLH domain. By direct sequencing, we analyzed the sequences encoding the bHLH domain of the human HEY2 in 52 explanted… (More)
