Two long QT syndrome loci map to chromosomes 3 and 7 with evidence for furtherheterogeneity.Nat Genet. 1994 Oct;8(2):141-7. PMID: 7842012 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]|
Cardiac arrhythmias cause sudden death in 300,000 United States citizens every year. In this study, we describe two new loci for an inherited cardiac arrhythmia, long QT syndrome (LQT). In 1991 we reported linkage of LQT to chromosome 11p15.5. In this study we demonstrate further linkage to D7S483 in nine families with a combined lod score of 19.41 and to D3S1100 in three families with a combined score of 6.72. These findings localize major LQT genes to chromosomes 7q35-36 and 3p21-24, respectively. Linkage to any known locus was excluded in three families indicating that additional heterogeneity exists. Proteins encoded by different LQT genes may interact to modulate cardiac repolarization and arrhythmia risk.

We have identified a conserved family of genes related to Drosophila eag, which encodes a distinct type of voltage-activated K+ channel. Three related genes were recovered in screens of cDNA libraries from Drosophila, mouse, and human tissues. One gene is the mouse counterpart of eag; the other two represent additional subfamilies. The human gene maps to chromosome 7. Family members share at least 47% amino acid identity in their hydrophobic cores and all contain a segment homologous to a cyclic nucleotide-binding domain. Sequence comparisons indicate that members of this family are most closely related to vertebrate cyclic nucleotide-gated cation channels and plant inward-rectifying K+ channels. The existence of another family of K+ channel structural genes further extends the known diversity of K+ channels and has important implications for the structure, function, and evolution of the superfamily of voltage-sensitive ion channels.
