TMEM43 belongs to the TMEM43 family. Additionally we are shipping TMEM43 Antibodies (22) and TMEM43 Proteins (4) and many more products for this protein.
Implantable cardioverter defibrillator therapy is indicated for primary prevention in postpubertal males and in females >/= 30 years with the p.S358L TMEM43 mutation.
These observations suggest that expression of the p.S358L mutant of TMEM43 found in ARVC type 5 may affect localization of proteins involved in conduction, alter gap junction function and reduce conduction velocity in cardiac tissue.
ARVC due to p.S358L in TMEM43 is a variant form of ARVC with extreme variability of expression. It is sex influenced: males are more frequently hospitalized and have heart failure and SCD (show SCD ELISA Kits) at a younger age than females.
TMEM43 mutations occur outside of the founder population of the island of Newfoundland where it was originally described.
full gene sequencing of TMEM43 in 143 ARVC probands (families) from the UK revealed three potential pathogenic variants (p.R312W, p.R28W, p.E142K). The p.R312W missense variant is a recurrent mutation due to a founder effect and is likely pathogenic.
Ser358Leu mutant TMEM43 exhibits normal cellular localization and does not disrupt integrity and localization of other nuclear envelope and desmosomal proteins.
The TMEM43 gene underlies a distinctive form of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) which may share a final common pathway with desmosome-associated ARVC.
The results of study suggested that mutant LUMAs may be associated with EDMD (show EMD ELISA Kits)-related myopathy.
Studies indicate that in 2007, the Newfoundland local research team discovered the causative mutation in a novel gene TMEM43 within the disease-associated founder haplotype.
In families with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, there was found a missense mutation in a highly conserved transmembrane domain of TMEM43 and was predicted to be deleterious.
This gene belongs to the TMEM43 family. Defects in this gene are the cause of familial arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia type 5 (ARVD5), also known as arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy type 5 (ARVC5). Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia is an inherited disorder, often involving both ventricles, and is characterized by ventricular tachycardia, heart failure, sudden cardiac death, and fibrofatty replacement of cardiomyocytes. This gene contains a response element for PPAR gamma (an adipogenic transcription factor), which may explain the fibrofatty replacement of the myocardium, a characteristic pathological finding in ARVC.
