rs45620037, also known as Thr220Ile or T220I, is a SNP in the cardiac sodium channel SCN5A gene.

Individuals with a copy of the rs45620037(T) allele are considered at higher risk for dilated cardiomyopathy; see OMIM for discussion of one such patient.

This variant meets the criteria published in 2013 by the ACMG regarding incidental findings in exome or genome sequencing, as a variant that they do recommend informing a patient about.[PMID 23788249]
