Molecular Genetics of ARVD.

Eight different chromosomal localizations of ARVD genes have been detected so far:

  • ARVD1 (autosomal dominant), mapped to chromosome 14 long arm (14q23-q24) (Rampazzo et al., 1994)
  • ARVD2 (autosomal dominant), mapped to chromosome 1 long arm (1q42-q43) (Rampazzo et al., 1995)
  • ARVD3 (autosomal dominant), mapped to chromosome 14 long arm (14q12-q22) (Severini et al., 1996)
  • ARVD4 (autosomal dominant), mapped to chromosome 2 long arm (2q32.1-q32.3) (Rampazzo et al., 1997)
  • ARVD5 (autosomal dominant), mapped to chromosome 3 short arm (3p23) (Ahamad et al., 1998)
  • ARVD6 (autosomal dominant), mapped to chromosome 10 short arm (10p12-p14) (Li D. et al., 2000)
  • ARVD7 (autosomal dominant), mapped to chromosome 10 long arm (10q22) (Melberg ed al., 1999)
  • ARVD8 (autosomal dominant), mapped to chromosome 6 short arm (6p24) (Rampazzo ed al., 2002)

  • NAXOS (autosomal recessive), mapped to chromosome 17 long arm (17q21) (Coonar et al., 1998)
  • Carvajal Syndrome (autosomal recessive), mapped to chromosome 6 short arm (6p24) (Norgett et al., 2000)
