Key Report Findings

Human Ether-a-go-go Related Gene (hERG gene) (KCNH2) is an encoder of the potassium ion channel that repolarizes IKr current in the heart. It consists of 6 transmembrane domains which are serially numbered from S1-S6. The abnormalities resulting in this channel can either lead to Long QT syndrome (LQT2) or Short QTsyndrome causing loss of function mutations and gain of function mutations respectively. Both of these are considered as potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmia caused due to repolarisation disturbances of the cardiac action potential.

Global hERG Screening market is projected to grow at 28.97%, compounded annually from 2005 through 2015. hERG Screening has its major role in the pharmaceutical field in drug release process. Some drugs may prolong the QT interval in normal and healthy individuals and result in QT Syndrome. This side effect has promoted majority of pharmaceutical companies to screen compounds for hERG channel activity in early stages of drug discovery and development process. Many companies are developing cell lines such as HEK 293, and CHO to aid in vitro screening for hERG channel activity.
