We recently reported a novel, heterozygous, and non-synonymous ACTC1 mutation (p.Gly247Asp or G247D) in a large, multi-generational family, causing atrial-septal defect followed by late-onset dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). We also found that the G247D ACTC1 mutation negatively regulated serum response (SRF)-signaling thereby contributing to the late-onset DCM observed in human patients carrying this mutation (“A cardiac α-actin (ACTC1) p. Gly247Asp mutation inhibits SRF-signaling in vitro in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes” [1]). There are some ACTC1 mutations known to date, majority of which, though, have not been investigated for their functional consequence. We thus aimed at determining the functional impact of various ACTC1 gene mutations on SRF-signaling using SM22-response element driven firefly luciferase activity assays in C2C12 cells. © 2019 The Author(s)
