University of Pittsburgh cardiologists identify new cardiac arrest gene

two episodes of ventricular fibrillation that were corrected by ICD shocks.

Of note, our collaborators have shown that mutations in GPD1-L also cause other heart rhythm disorders, said Dr. London. In a related article in same issue of Circulation, Michael Ackerman, M.D., Ph.D., director of Mayo Clinics Long QT Syndrome Clinic and director of the Mayo Clinic Windland Smith Rice Sudden Death Genomics Laboratory in Rochester, Minn., and his collaborators screened GPD1-L in infants who died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and identified three mutations. Mutations in ion channels and ion channel-related genes are becoming increasingly recognized as causes of SIDS.
