It has long been noted that while patients with familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy due to cardiac troponin T (cTnT) mutations often suffer sudden cardiac death, they do not develop significant ventricular hypertrophy, suggesting that a distinct cellular mechanism apart from alterations in myocardial contractility is responsible. A new study has revealed that a single missense mutation in cTnT causes a striking disruption to energy metabolism, leading to cardiomyopathy.
