    ..These results suggest that focused studies of proteins within the cardiomyocyte ID are likely to provide insights into QT prolongation and its associated disorders. ..

    ..RET and NRG1 variants are common susceptibility factors for HSCR in Indonesia. These common variants demonstrate that development of HSCR requires joint effects of RET and NRG1 early in gut development. ..

    ..Thus, these polymorphisms can be used to stratify the newborn population into distinct phenotypic classes with defined risks to understand HSCR etiology. ..

    ..These studies show how the effects of functionally independent non-coding variants in a coordinated gene regulatory network amplify their individually small effects, providing a model for complex disorders. ..

    ..Thus, semaphorin 3C/3D signaling is an evolutionarily conserved regulator of ENS development whose dys-regulation is a cause of enteric aganglionosis. ..
