H no widening of QRS had a rSr’ complex. This observation

H no widening of QRS had a rSr’ complex. This observation suggests that TRPM4 mutation screening should be considered in BrS when a widening of QRS or a rSr’ complex is observed, a condition which not rare in BrS cases. Similar to the families 22948146 with cardiac conduction blocks, no cases of left bundle branch block were observed.cellular and cell surface expression level of TRPM4 channels, WT and TRPM4 mutants were transiently transfected in HEK293 cells. Forty-eight hours post-transfection, the expression of TRPM4 channels at the total protein level and at the cell surface was assessed by quantitative Western blots (figure 6 and figure S3). Under our migration conditions, two distinct bands representing fully and core glycosylated forms of TRPM4 were observed. All mutants showed a significantly SPDP altered expression of TRPM4. The p.Pro779Arg and p.Lys914X mutants showed a decreased of total expression whereas p.Lys914X was comparable to background level. With an anti-HA antibody, a shorter band was visible in the total and the surface expression demonstrating that p.Lys914X results in the production of a truncated protein (figure S4). By contrast, the p.Thr873Ile mutant showed a significant increase inTable 2.
