Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy Gene Curation Expert Panel

The arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) Gene Curation Expert Panel is focused on defining the genes in which pathogenic variants clearly cause arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. The gene-disease validity curation process includes 6 classification categories describing the level of evidence supporting a given gene-disease relationship: Definitive, Strong, Moderate, Limited, Disputed, Refuted.

This GCEP will begin by analyzing gene:disease relationships for ARVC; the ARVC gene list includes Cypher/ZASP, RyR2, DSP, CDH2, JUP, DES, DSC2, DSG2, LMNA, CTNNA3, PLN, SCN5A, TTN, TMEM43, TGFB3 and SCN3B, with others under consideration as curation goes on.
