NEW YORK – Only a portion of individuals with truncating mutations in the Titin gene has a diagnosis of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), according to a new study, despite the fact that these disruptions are common in DCM patients.

Truncating mutations in the Titin gene (TTN) are commonly found among individuals with idiopathic DCM, a condition that affects about 750,000 people in the US and is marked by an enlarged and weakened left heart ventricle. But it was unclear whether truncating mutations in TTN always lead to dilated cardiomyopathy.
