Whole exome sequencing to identify a novel gene (caveolin-1) associated with human pulmonary arterial hypertension.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Heritable and idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) are phenotypically identical and associated with mutations in several genes related to transforming growth factor (TGF) beta signaling, including bone morphogenetic protein receptor type 2, activin receptor-like kinase 1, endoglin, and mothers against decapentaplegic 9.
