KCNJ2 mutation in short QT syndrome 3 results in atrial fibrillation and ventricular proarrhythmia.
 

Author(s): Makarand Deo, Yanfei Ruan, Sandeep V Pandit, Kushal Shah, Omer Berenfeld, Andrew Blaufox, Marina Cerrone, Sami F Noujaim, Marco Denegri, José Jalife, Silvia G Priori

Journal: Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A.. 2013 Mar;110(11):4291-6.

 

We describe a mutation (E299V) in KCNJ2, the gene that encodes the strong inward rectifier K(+) channel protein (Kir2.1), in an 11-y-old boy. The unique short QT syndrome type-3 phenotype is associated with an extremely abbreviated QT interval (200 ms) on ECG and paroxysmal atrial ...
