PLN GENE?

PLN GENE?

In order to make our heart beat, calcium ions that flow in and out of the myocardial cells, are very important.

Heart disease is caused by a loss of cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells), usually because of a heart attack or weakening of the cardiac muscle cells. Heart contractions and the ability to pump blood through our bodies depend on well orchestrated calcium movements in and out of the cell. The PLN (phospholamban) gene is a key regulator of the pump that controls calcium cycling. Scientific names for this PLN gene mutation are c.40_42del AGA and p.Arg14del. (more…)
