PMID:  23905889     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
Brugada syndrome is an inherited arrhythmia syndrome predisposing to sudden cardiac death. Six years after its initial description as a clinical entity, the first mutations in SCN5A encoding the cardiac sodium channel Nav1.5 were reported. Over 300 mutations in SCN5A have since been described in addition to mutations in genes encoding Nav1.5 auxiliary units, potassium and calcium channels. This review summarizes the current knowledge on the genetics of Brugada syndrome, focusing on SCN5A, and discusses its use as a biomarker for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment.
