Study Description

Cardiomyopathies are a heterogeneous group of primary diseases of the myocardium,including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), andarrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), with higher morbidity andmortality. These diseases are genetically diverse and associated with rare mutations ina large number of genes, many of which overlap among the phenotypes. To betterinvestigate the genetic overlap between these three phenotypes and to identify newgenotype-phenotype correlations, we designed a custom gene panel consisting of 115genes known to be associated with cardiomyopathic phenotypes and channelopathies.A cohort of 38 unrelated patients, 16 affected by DCM, 14 by HCM and 8 by ARVC,was recruited for the study on the basis of more severe phenotypes and family historyof cardiomyopathy and/or sudden death.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
In this study, we present the results of a custom “pan-cardiomyopathy panel” in a molecular screening of 38 unrelated patients, 16 affected by DCM, 14 by HCM, and 8 by ARVC. The panel was designed using the Design Studio Tool (Illumina, San Diego, CA,USA). Coding regions and intron–exon boundaries of 115 genes, known to be associated with 7 DCM, HCM, and ARVC as well as channelopathies, were selected for targeted gene enrichment. For genes with multiple transcripts, all exons included ... (Show More)
