Molecular genetics of parathyroid disease

Abstract:

Recent advances in molecular biology and cytogenetics have made it possible to localize, clone, and characterize some of the genetic abnormalities that result in parathyroid diseases. Thus mutations in the recently cloned calcium-sensing receptor gene have been reported in patients with familial benign hypercalcemia and autosomal dominant hypocalcemia, and the role of PRAD1 has revealed a novel cyclin to be involved in the pathogenesis of some parathyroid tumors. In addition, muta-tions in th...
