A novel missense mutation, I890T, in the pore region of cardiac sodium channel causes Brugada syndrome.

A novel missense mutation, I890T, in the pore region of cardiac sodium channel causes Brugada syndrome.

Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a life-threatening, inherited arrhythmogenic syndrome associated with autosomal dominant mutations in SCN5A, the gene encoding the cardiac Na(+) channel alpha subunit (Na(v)1.5). The aim of this work was to characterize the functional alterations caused by a novel SCN5A mutation, I890T, and thus establish whether this mutation is associated with BrS. The mutation was identified by direct sequencing of SCN5A from the proband's DNA.
