Frequent occurrence of an intron 4 mutation in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1.
MEN1 is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by parathyroid, pituitary, and pancreatic tumors. The MEN1 gene is located on chromosome 11q13 and encodes a 610-amino acid protein. MEN1 mutations are of diverse types and are scattered throughout the coding region, such that almost every MEN1 family will have its individual mutation. To further characterize such mutations we ascertained 34 unrelated MEN1 probands and undertook DNA sequence analysis. This identified 17 different mutations ...Expand abstract
