Mutations in the KCNH2 gene are a well-established cause of sudden cardiac death, resulting from disturbed electrical signalling, in otherwise healthy young people. Yet, the majority of missense variants identified in KCNH2 are likely to be benign. To differentiate between benign and pathogenic variants in KCNH2 we have developed a high throughput functional assay using the syncropatch 384PE automated patch clamp system.
