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: Scale 4 has a high degree of severity. It generally causes a decreased quality of life and may also decrease the 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.
