PMID Text
26995964 PKP2 regulates Wnt activity during adipogenic and cardiomyogenic differentiation in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.
26321091 Family members - desmosomal mutation carriers who restricted exercise at or below the upper bound of the American Heart Association goal were less likely to be diagnosed and had no Ventricular Tachycardia.
26260507 A heterozygous pathogenic variant in the plakophilin-2 (c.2392A>G, p.T798A) gene was found in an arrhythmogenic LV cardiomyopathy patient and his deceased mother who had had arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy affecting both ventricles.
25972099 Data suggest juxtamembrane regions/domains of desmocollin-2 (DSC2), plakophilin 2 (PKP2), and plakophilin 3 (PKP3) are involved in desmosome formation in epithelial cells; DSC2 participates in desmosome formation in absence of desmoglein 2 (DSG2).
25936878 Exercise test is valuable for the diagnosis of ARVC in patients with PKP2 gene mutation.
25900994 Case Report: PKP2/DSP mutations in patient with Brugada syndrome and ventricular tachycardia.
25889434 Plakofilin2 mutation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of Brugada syndrome.
25857910 The introduction of the PKP2 R735X mutation into mice resulted in an exercise-dependent arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.
25786693 Extreme variability in clinical penetrance for a splice-site PKP2 mutation was found in a Bangladeshi family. Some family members were affected by arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, and some are asymptomatic.
25398255 Currently, 13 genes have been associated with the disease but nearly 40 % of clinically diagnosed cases remain without a genetic diagnosis.
