abstract = "Introduction: Inherited long QT syndrome (LQTS) recently has been associated with mutations in genes coding for potassium (KVLQT1, KCNE1, and HERG) or sodium (SCN5A) ion channels involved in regulating either sodium inward or potassium outward currents of heart cells, resulting in prolongation of the repolarization period. We describe a new mutation, a -1 donor splice site mutation in a kindred with two affected members (QTc = 0.61 and 0.54 sec).

DNA sequencing confirmed the presence of a G→A change in the last nucleotide of codon 344.

Conclusion: The clinical course of LQTS in the affected family members, in whom no deaths occurred despite 20 to 30 syncopes, can be explained by the ability of the cellular machinery to perform partial correct splicing in the mutant allele. This type of mutation may be misinterpreted as a normal variant, since it is a point mutation causing neither an amino acid change nor the introduction of a stop codon.",
