Parafibromin mutations in hereditary hyperparathyroidism syndromes and parathyroid tumours.
OBJECTIVE: To investigate two patients with the hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumour (HPT-JT) syndrome and three patients with familial isolated hyperparathyroidism (FIHP), together with 31 parathyroid tumours (2 HPT-JT, 2 FIHP and 27 sporadic) for HRPT2 mutations. The HPT-JT syndrome and FIHP are autosomal dominant disorders that may be caused by abnormalities of the HRPT2 gene, located on chromosome 1q31.2. HRPT2 encodes a 531 amino acid protein, parafibromin, which interacts with human homologue...Expand abstract
