• DSG2 mutations are similar in incidence in ARVC as well as Sudden Unexplained Death.
• There may be a link between the DSG2 and arrhythmias in the absence of the fibrofatty change characteristic of ARVC.
• DSG2 mutations may also be able to cause fatal arrhythmias even in patients with a morphological normal hear.
Desmoglein-2 (DSG2), a member of the desmosomal cadherin superfamily, has been linked to arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC)which may cause life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and sudden death. Fatal arrhythmias resulting in sudden death also occur in the absence of morphologic cardiac abnormalities at autopsy. We sequenced all 15 exons of DSG2 in DNA extracted from post-mortem heart tissues of 25 patients dying with ARVC and 25 from sudden unexplained death (SUD). The primers were designed using the Primer Express 3.0 software. Direct sequencing for both sense and antisense strands was performed with a BigDye Terminator DNA sequencing kit on a 3130 xl Genetic Analyzer. Mutation damage prediction was made using Mutation Taster, Polyphen and SIFT software. 2 DSG2 mutations (p. S1026Q fsX12, p. G678R)in two ARVC samples and 2 DSG2 mutations(p. E 896K, p. A858 V) in two SUD samples were identified, all the mutations were novel. We concluded that DSG2 mutations may not specific for ARVC and may be related to the fatal arrhythmic events even in patients with a morphological normal heart.
