A common mitochondrial DNA variant is associated with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy in two different populations

Abstract:

Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a devastating disease. It is a recognised manifestation of mitochondrial disease and in some cases the only clinical abnormality. Although specific mitochondrial DNA(mtDNA) mutations in tRNAleu/lle have been identified in mitochondrial disease associated with DCM, it is not known whether any mtDNA variants predispose to sporadic DCM. We aimed to determine the prevalence of a mtDNA variant (T16189C), in DCM; this variant has been previously implicated in suscept...
