Wilhelmina S. Kerstjens-Frederikse and colleagues present a study to determine the prevalence and phenotypic spectrum of NOTCH1 mutations in left-sided congenital heart disease (LS-CHD). They identified pathogenic mutations in NOTCH1 in 7% of familial LS-CHD and in 1% of sporadic LS-CHD. Their study hightlights a high penetrance; a cardiovascular malformation was found in 75% of NOTCH1 mutation carriers.



What they say
about Alamut

"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."
