The giant muscle filament protein titin is encoded by a single gene consisting of 364 exons. In the past, because of its enormous size and complexity, only few titin mutations were discovered causing different cardiac and skeletal muscle conditions; however, the overall role for heritable diseases, in particular dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), has been significantly underestimated. Recently performed systematic studies using next-generation sequencing (NGS) recognized TTN as the major human… CONTINUE READING
