    Abstract

    Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a primary arrhythmia syndrome characterized by the occurrence of malignant ventricular arrhythmias. Previously, the genes SCN1B, SCN3B, MOG1, and KCND3 have been associated with BrS. Recent data from exome screening efforts permit better discrimination between low-frequency genetic variants and true monogenetic disease-causing variants. We aimed to screen the genes SCN1B through SCN4B, MOG1, CAV3, and KCND3 for variations in a population of SCN5A negative Danish and Iranian BrS patients, as well as research prior associations using newly released exome data.
