Answer

More recently, investigators appeared to have identified a novel locus in a family with WPW, MYH6 p.E1885K. [14] All of the family members with WPW but none of the unaffected relatives demonstrated this variant. MYH6 variants have been associated with atrial septal defects, cardiomyopathies, and sick sinus syndrome. [14]
