abstract

  • The locus identified in this study for familial dilated cardiomyopathy, 1q32, is rich in candidate genes, such as MEF-2, renin, and helix loop helix DNA binding protein MYF-4. Identification of the genetic defect could provide insight into the molecular basis for the cardiac dilatory response in both familial and acquired disorders.
