Project Summary

Heterotaxy is a disorder that results in certain organs, such as the heart, forming on the opposite side of the body. It is understood that the genetic basis for heterotaxy is highly relevant in congenital heart disease and the study of this novel gene will have clinical significance and will reveal mechanisms of abnormal cardiac development.
