Postmortem molecular analysis of KCNQ1 and SCN5A genes in sudden unexplained death in young Australians.
Major ion channels, like SCN5A, L-type [Ca.sup.2+] channel, [I.sub.to], [I.sub.Kr], [I.sub.Ks], and [I.sub.K1], play critical roles in the electrical activities and functions of healthy and diseased cardiomyocytes.
The primary mechanism of BrS is mutations in the SCN5A gene, which are responsible for regulation of the alpha subunit of sodium channels in the cell membrane of cardiac muscle (3).
(13) Multiple predictors of future arrhythmic events in patients with the Brugada pattern were studied, with male gender, mutation of the SCN5A gene and a positive family history of SCD found to be non -predictive.
Genetic testing was positive for a heterozygous mutation in the sodium voltage-gated channel alpha subunit 5 (SCN5A) gene with a p.
Variants in 3 ion channel genes account for over 70% of patients with a definitive diagnosis of LQTS (13, 14) [although the yield is substantially less for all referral cases (15)]: loss of function variants in the potassium ion channel genes potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily Q member 1 (KCNQ1) and potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily H member 2 (KCNH2; LQT1 and LQT2 respectively) and gain of function variants in the sodium ion channel gene sodium voltage-gated channel alpha a subunit 5 (SCN5A; LQT3).
Deng et al., "Whole-exome sequencing identifies Y1495X of SCN5A to be associated with familial conduction disease and sudden death," Scientific Reports, vol.
A SCN5A gene variant (R1193Q) was identified after birth, which might have attributed to the complex arrhythmias in this patient.
At first it was thought Fiona, of Annitsford, may had suffered Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome (SADS) but tests later showed she was suffering from a faulty gene called SCN5A. This mutation was the probable cause of her death.
Although iPSC-CMs express relevant ion channel genes (SCN5A, KCNJ2, CACNA1C, KCNQ1, and KCNH2), structural genes (MYH6, MYLPF, MYBPC3, DES, TNNT2, and TNNI3), and transcription factors (NKX2.5, GATA4, and GATA6) [77], they differ from adult ventricular cardiomyocytes in a number of properties.
Gene mutations in KCNQ1, KCNH2 and SCN5A account for 90% to 95% cases of long QT syndrome.
[1] The pathology is due to gene mutation SCN5A located on 3p, [5] which codes for sodium ion channel on cell membranes of myocytes of heart.
