Mutant gene accounts for some cases of congenital heart disease

Sick sinus syndrome (SSS) was first described in 1967 and is characterized by arrhythmia, palpitations, and fainting. Although frequently associated with heart disease and seen most often in the elderly, SSS may occur in the fetus, infant or child without apparent cause. In these cases, it is presumed to be congenital. D. Woodrow Benson and colleagues at Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, screened 10 pediatric SSS patients from 7 families for mutations in the alpha subunit of the cardiac sodium channel gene (SCN5A) a gene previously associated with cardiac rhythm disorders - and found that 5 individuals carrying mutations in this gene demonstrated a loss of sodium channel function, predicted to reduce excitability of the heart. This study reveals that congenital SSS, in some families, is a recessive disorder of the cardiac sodium channel.
