Abstract

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) (MIM #187500) is a congenital heart disease (CHD) observed in 7–13% of individuals affected by Alagille syndrome (ALGS; MIM #118450) (1, 2), an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by abnormalities of liver, heart, skeleton, eye and distinct facial features. ALGS is predominantly caused by mutations in JAGGED1 (JAG1; MIM +601920) gene (3, 4), but individuals with JAG1 mutations may also have apparently non-syndromic cardiac disease (5–8). In this study, we used denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography to analyze for mutations the entire coding region of the JAG1 gene (RefSeq: NM_000214.2) in 112 non-syndromic patients with TOF and 11 patients with TOF and multiple anomalies in the setting of an unidentifiable syndrome.
