Discovery suggests how toxin-filtering cells go awry.
Long QT syndrome has been known for decades to trigger sudden fainting spells, dizziness, abnormal heart rhythms and tragically, sudden death.
Targeted postmortem testing to identify genetic mutations associated with sudden unexplained death (SUD) is an effective and less expensive way to determine risk to relatives than comprehensive cardiac testing of first degree relatives.

The most common gene for a syndrome associated with abnormal heart rhythms and sudden death triggers epileptic seizures and could explain sudden unexplained death in epilepsy, said researchers from Baylor College of Medicine in a report that appears today in the journal Science Translational Medicine.
A multi-national research team has discovered that two genetic factors converge to increase the risk of sudden cardiac death.
Cystic fibrosis, also called mucoviscidosis, is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder of the viscous secretions in the body. In turn, it effects the lungs, pancreas, liver, and intestines, as well as all other exocrine glands in the body. The most common genetic mutation that causes CF is a deletion of three nucleotides that results in a loss of phenylalanine, an amino acid at the 508th position on the protein. It should be noted, however, that there are over a thousand other mutations that...
