What is the genome for idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis?

What is the genome for idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis?

Autosomal Dom.: Many genes code for this anomaly of sarcomere proteins: chr 14 in the beta-myosin heavy chain; protein c cardiac myosin. This error creates some degree of left ventricular hypertrophy involving the septum between the ventricles: asymmetric septal hypertrophy. Lethal arrhythmias may occur. Genetic testing is available.
