MYBPC3 Gene Mutation Analysis

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is typically inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern and has a variable age of onset and prognosis. Mutations in the myosin-binding protein (MYBPC3) gene are one of the most frequent genetic causes of the disease. Various mutations in the MYBPC3 gene have been documented in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The c.3330+2T>G mutation has been found specifically in Old Order Amish patients.
