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.

Usage data is cumulative from March 2022 through March 2023.
Usage information is collected from two different sources: this site (JCI) and Pubmed Central (PMC). JCI information (compiled daily) shows human readership based on methods we employ to screen out robotic usage. PMC information (aggregated monthly) is also similarly screened of robotic usage.
Various methods are used to distinguish robotic usage. For example, Google automatically scans articles to add to its search index and identifies itself as robotic; other services might not clearly identify themselves as robotic, or they are new or unknown as robotic. Because this activity can be misinterpreted as human readership, data may be re-processed periodically to reflect an improved understanding of robotic activity. Because of these factors, readers should consider usage information illustrative but subject to change.
