There is an error in the first sentence. The credit for discovery of the Arg403Gln phenotypic expression of HCM was mistakenly published as Dr. Thierfelder’s group. The correct sentence should read as follows:
The seminal discovery of the R403Q mutation in the beta-myosin heavy chain (MyHC) gene as a cause of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) by Dr. Seidman’s group a decade ago (1) ushered in a new era in the molecular genetics of HCM.
We regret this error.
