Scientists identify a gene causing a fatal heart condition, common in an Israeli Bedouin tribe

A team of researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Sheba Medical Center has identified a gene causing polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (PVT), a fatal heart condition. Characterized by a fast and irregular heartbeat, seizures, and in certain cases, sudden death, PVT primarily affects young children from a Bedouin Arab tribe in Israel.
