The table below lists the 0 rare (MAF<0.0001 in ExAC) protein-altering MYL3 variants identified in a cohort of 543 DCM patients (355 patients from OMGL, 188 patients from LMM). As the background population rate of rare protein-altering MYL3 variants (0.00182) is greater than this case frequency (0.00000), there is no excess of variants in this DCM patient cohort, suggesting that protein-altering MYL3 variants are not causative for DCM.
