Juan Jimenez-Jaimez and colleagues conduct a study to describe the clinical manifestations of the Asn98Ser mutation in CALM2 in two unrelated children in southern Spain with apparently unexplained cardiac arrest/death. They identified a p.Asn98Ser mutation in CALM2 in both cases that affected a highly conserved across species residue, and the location in the protein was adjacent to critical calcium binding loops in the calmodulin carboxyl-terminal domain, predicting a high pathogenic effect.

"I have previously used Alamut Visual in the UK and it is an invaluable resource for variant curation which I was keen to bring into use in my new role in New Zealand. provides a convenient and user-friendly interface which pulls together literature searches, population databases and in silico prediction tools. This enables streamlining of the curation process and saves a lot of time."
