Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy: reassessing the link with the desmosome
TLDR
This work aims to review the purported link between ARVC and the desmosome by a critical analysis of reported data, and finds the specificity of histopathological features is even in question. Expand
Identification of a novel gene involved in Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy/Dysplasia
TLDR
Mutation screening for desmosomal genes performed in 80 consecutive unrelated Italian probands failed to detect mutation in about half of index cases, thus suggesting further genetic heterogeneity, and the recurrence of pathogenic mutations in CTNNA3 gene in ARVC/D patients expands the concept of this disease beyond desmosomes. Expand
Failure of ICD therapy in lethal arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy type 5 caused by the TMEM43 p.Ser358Leu mutation
TLDR
3 unrelated cases with ARVC-5 due to the TMEM43 p.Ser358Leu mutation are presented in which ICD therapy unfortunately could not prevent SCD. Expand
End stage of arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy with severe involvement of the interventricular septum.
TLDR
This case illustrates that arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy is not limited to the right ventricle but involves the entire myocardium, including the interventricular septum, including a heterogeneous distribution of connexin43 and focal electron microscopic abnormalities among these regions. Expand
Functional Effects of the TMEM 43 Ser 358 Leu Mutation in the Pathogenesis of Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy
Background: The Ser358Leu mutation in TMEM43, encoding an inner nuclear membrane protein, has been implicated in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC). The pathogenetic mechanisms ofExpand
Detection of genomic deletions of PKP2 in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
TLDR
Two cases of ARVC possessing large deletions involving plakophilin‐2 (PKP2) identified with microarray analysis and/or multiplex ligation‐dependent probe amplification (MLPA) that would have been classified as genotype negative with standard clinical genetic testing are described. Expand
TMEM43 Mutation p.S358L Alters Intercalated Disc Protein Expression and Reduces Conduction Velocity in Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
Observations suggest that expression of the p.S358L mutant of TMEM43 found in ARVC type 5 may affect localization of proteins involved in conduction, alter gap junction function and reduce conduction velocity in cardiac tissue. Expand
Remodeling of Cell-Cell Junctions in Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
A review of recent advances in understanding disease mechanisms in AC that have come from studies of human myocardium and experimental models suggests remodeling of intercalated disk proteins reflecting abnormal responses to mechanical load and aberrant cell signaling pathways in the pathogenesis of AC. Expand
Functional effects of the TMEM43 Ser358Leu mutation in the pathogenesis of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
TLDR
Mutant TMEM43 exhibits normal cellular localization and does not disrupt integrity and localization of other nuclear envelope and desmosomal proteins, and did not alter the expression of genes located on chromosome 13, previously implicated in nuclear envelope protein mutations leading to skeletal muscular dystrophies. Expand
TMEM43 mutations associated with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy in non-Newfoundland populations
TLDR
Five separate rare TMEM43 sequence variants in non-Newfoundland patients, each occurring in an evolutionarily conserved amino acid, occur outside of the founder population of the island of Newfoundland where it was originally described. Expand

Mutations in the desmosomal protein plakophilin-2 are common in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
TLDR
In two kindreds with ARVC, disease was incompletely penetrant in most carriers of PKP2 mutations, and the identified heterozygous mutations inPKP2, which encodes plakophilin-2, an essential armadillo-repeat protein of the cardiac desmosome. Expand
Mutation in human desmoplakin domain binding to plakoglobin causes a dominant form of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
A mutation (S299R) in exon 7 of desmoplakin (DSP), which modifies a putative phosphorylation site in the N-terminal domain binding plakoglobin is identified, which might produce different clinical phenotypes, with different modes of inheritance. Expand
Severe cardiac phenotype with right ventricular predominance in a large cohort of patients with a single missense mutation in the DES gene.
TLDR
Patients show a variable yet predominantly cardiologic phenotype characterized by conduction disease at an early age and RV involvement including right bundle branch block and/or RV tachycardias and arrhythmogenic RV cardiomyopathy phenocopies, suggesting a localized effect of desmin on the structure of the cardiac intercalated disks might contribute to disease pathogenesis. Expand
Recessive arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia due to novel cryptic splice mutation in PKP2
TLDR
The first case of recessive ARVD caused by mutations in PKP2 is reported, with the absence of remote consanguinity and the possibility of cryptic or alternative splicing. Expand
Mutant desmocollin-2 causes arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that physiologic levels of DSC2 are crucial for normal cardiac desmosome formation, early cardiac morphogenesis, and cardiac function. Expand
Multiple mutations in desmosomal proteins encoding genes in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia.
TLDR
Occurrence of compound and double heterozygotes in ARVC/D index cases is particularly relevant to mutation screening strategy and to genetic counseling, as even if multiple-mutation carriers show a wide variability in clinical expression, the extent of the disease is higher compared to that in single-mutations carriers. Expand
Wide spectrum of desmosomal mutations in Danish patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
TLDR
This study supports comprehensive desmosomal mutation screening beyond the first encountered mutation, whereas routine screening for genomic rearrangements does not seem indicated. Expand
Mutations in Desmoglein-2 Gene Are Associated With Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
The presence of mutations in desmosomal encoding genes in 40% of cases confirms that many forms of ARVC are due to alterations in the desmosome complex. Expand
Identification of a deletion in plakoglobin in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy with palmoplantar keratoderma and woolly hair (Naxos disease)
TLDR
The finding of a deletion in plakoglobin in ARVC suggests that the proteins involved in cell-cell adhesion play an important part in maintaining myocyte integrity, and when junctions are disrupted, cell death, and fibrofatty replacement occur. Expand
