Regulation of SCN3B/scn3b by Interleukin 2 (IL-2): IL-2 modulates SCN3B/scn3b transcript expression and increases sodium current in myocardial cells.
Wuhan, China. In Bmc Cardiovasc Disord, Dec 2015
METHODS: In the present study, we observed the effect of IL-2 by qRT-PCR on the transcription of ion channel genes including SCN2A, SCN3A, SCN4A, SCN5A, SCN9A, SCN10A, SCN1B, SCN2B, SCN3B, KCNN1, KCNJ5, KCNE1, KCNE2, KCNE3, KCND3, KCNQ1, KCNA5, KCNH2 and CACNA1C.
Genetic Causes of Generalized Epilepsies.
Philadelphia, United States. In Semin Neurol, Jun 2015
The first decade of the 21st century was marked by progress in understanding the basic biology of generalized epilepsies including generalized/genetic epilepsies with febrile seizures plus (GEFS+) and GGE through studies of large families, discovering causative mutations in SCN1A, SCN1B, GABRG2, and GABRA1.
The role of the sodium current complex in a nonreferred nationwide cohort of sudden infant death syndrome.
Copenhagen, Denmark. In Heart Rhythm, Jun 2015
In total, 66 non-referred SIDS cases born in Denmark in the period of 2000-2006 were screened for genetic variants in the 8 major genes involved in the regulation of the Nav1.5 channel complex: SCN5A, SCN1B, SCN2B, SCN3B, SCN4B, GPD1L, SNTA1, and CAV3.
Inherited progressive cardiac conduction disorders.
Bern, Switzerland. In Curr Opin Cardiol, 2015
RECENT FINDINGS: Inherited PCCD in structurally normal hearts has been found to be linked to genetic variants in the ion channel genes SCN5A, SCN1B, SCN10A, TRPM4, and KCNK17, as well as in genes coding for cardiac connexin proteins.

Girona, Spain. In Plos One, 2014
Twenty-eight genes were resequenced: AKAP9, ANK2, CACNA1C, CACNB2, CASQ2, CAV3, DSC2, DSG2, DSP, GPD1L, HCN4, JUP, KCNE1, KCNE2, KCNE3, KCNH2, KCNJ2, KCNJ5, KCNQ1, NOS1AP, PKP2, RYR2, SCN1B, SCN3B, SCN4B, SCN5A, SNTA1, and TMEM43.
Genetic and clinical aspects of Brugada syndrome: an update.
Parma, Italy. In Adv Clin Chem, 2011
Accordingly, eight types of BS (from BS1 to BS8) have already been described, involving mutations in SCN5A, GPD1-L, CACNA1c, CACNB2b, SCN1B, KCNE3, SCN3B, and HCN4 genes.
