Module 12: Figure RYR mutations

Ryanodine receptor (RYR) mutations map to three hot spots.

Mutations of ryanodine receptors type 1 and 2 (RYR1 and RYR2) cause various disease such as malignant hyperthermia (MH), central core disease (CCD), catecholinergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy type 2 (ARVD2). These mutations are located in three hot spots (regions 1–3). Reproduced from Biochem. Biophys. Res.
