Distinct genetic architectures for syndromic and nonsyndromic congenital heart defects identified by exome sequencing.

Abstract:

Congenital heart defects (CHDs) have a neonatal incidence of 0.8–1% (refs. 1,2). Despite abundant examples of monogenic CHD in humans and mice, CHD has a low absolute sibling recurrence risk (~2.7%), suggesting a considerable role for de novo mutations (DNMs) and/or incomplete penetrance. De novo proteintruncating variants (PTVs) have been shown to be enriched among the 10% of ‘syndromic’ patients with extra-cardiac manifestations . We exome sequenced 1,891 probands, including both syndrom...
