Autosomal dominant arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVD, MIM 107970) is one of the major causes of juvenile sudden death. We have previously assigned the disease locus to chromosome 14q23-q24. Here we report on a novel variant of ARVD, which is transmitted associated to 1q42-q43 and is characterized by a concealed form, showing effort-induced polymorphic tachycardias. Since both loci ARVD1 and ARVD2 map in proximity of alpha-actinin genes, the possible implication of these myofibrillar proteins in the pathogenesis of ARVD is discussed. Two additional ARVD families, tested with markers of chromosomes 1q42-q43 and 14q23-q24, failed to show linkage, providing evidence of further genetic heterogeneity.

Abstract

Autosomal dominant arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVD, MIM 107970) is one of the major causes of juvenile sudden death. We have previously assigned the disease locus to chromosome 14q23-q24. Here we report on a novel variant of ARVD, which is transmitted associated to 1q42-q43 and is characterized by a concealed form, showing effort-induced polymorphic tachycardias. Since both loci ARVD1 and ARVD2 map in proximity of alpha-actinin genes, the possible implication of these myofibrillar proteins in the pathogenesis of ARVD is discussed. Two additional ARVD families, tested with markers of chromosomes 1q42-q43 and 14q23-q24, failed to show linkage, providing evidence of further genetic heterogeneity.
