Gene RIF (78)

26061005 A heterozygous missense mutation was found (c.251T>C, p.(Met84Thr)) in the ACTC1 gene
25863306 We reported a case of mirror-type dextrocardia who developed HCM in adulthood exhibiting multiple genetic mutation related to sarcomere proteins
25524337 In adult Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy patients, thin-filament gene ACTC1 mutations are associated with increased likelihood of advanced Left Ventricular dysfunction and heart failure compared with thick-filament disease.
25451174 The first step of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy pathogenesis with E99K is increased calcium sensitivity and decreased calcium cooperativity, which result in larger tension during partial activation to cause a diastolic problem.
25201647 highly penetrant, novel, heterozygous ACTC1I289T mutation is associated with a family with left ventricular noncompaction.
24742657 Treatment with cannabinoids inhibits HIV-1 Tat-enhanced attachment of U937 cells to collagen IV, laminin, or ECM1 proteins, which is linked to the cannabinoid receptor type 2 and the modulation of beta1-integrin and actin distribution
24736382 Change in the ability of cMyBP-C to bind cardiac actin modified filaments might contribute to the development of disease.
24461919 Our results provide further evidence supporting a causative role for ACTC1 mutations in ASD. Massively parallel sequencing of the exome allows for the detection of novel rare variants causing CHD without the limitations of a candidate gene approach.
24367596 Genetic variations at the ACTC1 gene may contribute to progression to chronic Chagas Cardiomyopathy
23875777 Treatment with cannabinoids inhibits HIV-1 Tat-enhanced attachment of U937 cells to collagen IV, laminin, or ECM1 proteins, which is linked to the cannabinoid receptor type 2 and the modulation of beta1-integrin and actin distribution
