About PLN Genetic Heart Disease
For our heart to beat, calcium ions in the heart muscle cells are important. The phospholamban (PLN) protein plays an important role in the calcium balance of the heart muscle cells.
Heart disease is caused by a loss of cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells), usually because of a heart attack or weakening of the cardiac muscle cells. Heart contractions and the ability to pump blood through our bodies depend on well orchestrated calcium movements in and out of the cell. The PLN (phospholamban) gene is a key regulator of the pump that controls calcium cycling. Scientific names for this PLN gene mutation are c.40_42del AGA and PLN.Arg14del. More about PLN Support Us
