Stress-activated kinase MKK7 governs epigenetics of cardiac repolarization for arrhythmia prevention

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: -Ventricular arrhythmia is a leading cause of cardiac mortality. Most antiarrhythmics present paradoxical pro-arrhythmic side effects, culminating in a greater risk of sudden death. METHODS: -We describe a new regulatory mechanism linking mitogen-activated kinase kinase-7 (MKK7) deficiency with increased arrhythmia vulnerability in hypertrophied and failing hearts using mouse models harbouring MKK7 knockout or overexpression. The human relevance of this arrhythmogenic mechanism is...
