This data provides compelling evidence that mutation-linked RyR2 channel dysfunction is modulated by common sequence polymorphisms and predicts that a more severe clinical phenotype results from the in cis inheritance of G1885E / L433P. Our studies also show that co-expression of L433P and G1885E subunits partially restores the functionality of the resultant heterotetrameric channels. The potential therapeutic benefits of positively modulating RyR2 mutant channel dysfunction via such a trans-complementation approach remain to be explored.
