Mode of inheritance
BOTH monoallelic and biallelic, autosomal or pseudoautosomal

Variants in this GENE are reported as part of current diagnostic practice

Ellen McDonagh (Genomics England Curator)

On the Inherited Cardiac Condition Genes panel for Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia reported in: Development of a Comprehensive Sequencing Assay for Inherited Cardiac Condition Genes, Pua et al, Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research, online Feb 2016 (doi:10.​1007/​s12265-016-9673-5). The panel contains disease-causing, putatively pathogenic, research and phenocopy genes, and it is unclear from the publication whether this gene falls into the disease-causing category. No. of mutations indicated in supplemental table = 1.
