Category: Cardiovascular - Associated with the heart and blood vessels
Gene: Striatin (STRN) on chromosome 17
Variant Detected: Nucleotide deletion chr17:29269446-29272662 deletion CATACACA (canFam3) 3’Untranslated region of the STRN gene
Severity: Moderate. This disease can cause significant signs of discomfort and/or dysfunction in affected animals. It may involve relatively high treatment/management costs, and can sometimes reduce life expectancy.
Mode of Inheritance: Autosomal Dominant with Incomplete Penetrance
Test Overview: Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a familial cardiac disease characterized by ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. It is most frequently inherited as an autosomal dominant trait with incomplete and age-related penetrance and variable clinical expression.
