NEXN variants in HCM cohorts

The table below lists the 8 rare (MAF<0.0001 in ExAC) protein-altering NEXN variants identified in a cohort of 632 HCM patients. When this rare variant frequency of 0.01266 is compared with a background population rate of 0.00756, there is a case excess of 0.00510, although this is not statistically significant for protein-altering NEXN variants in HCM (p=0.1584).
