Yet not much is known about patients with PA, VSD at a cellular level, so any available new data for this group is taken along in the understanding of this disease. As mentioned earlier, we studied limited numbers of patients and controls. Therefore the conclusions can only be drawn with caution. It may be added here that the limited clinical data on normal myocardium in young healthy children is a limitation of our study as well. We are currently accumulating appropriate tissue biopsies to increase the number of contro ls.

Two of these mutations are found within a troponin T binding site, located at amino acids 175 and 180. In this study, we analyze a transgenic mouse model for one of the mutations that occur at codon 180: a substitution of a glutami c acid for a glycine. These mice develop severe cardiac hypertrophy, substantial interstitial fibrosis, and have an increased heart weight! body weight ratio . Results show that calcium-handling proteins associated with the sarcoplasmic reticulum exhibit decreased expres sion .
