Sporadic pituitary adenomas: the role of germline mutations and recommendations for genetic screening.
INTRODUCTION: Although most pituitary adenomas occur sporadically, these common tumors can present in a familial setting in approximately 5% of cases. Germline mutations in several genes with autosomal dominant (AIP, MEN1, ...
Genetic Aspects of Pituitary Adenomas.
Although most of pituitary adenomas are benign, they may cause significant burden to patients. Sporadic adenomas represent the vast majority of the cases, where recognized somatic mutations (eg, GNAS or USP8), as well as ...
cAMP-specific PDE4 phosphodiesterases and AIP in the pathogenesis of pituitary tumors.
PDE4 cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases regulate cAMP abundance in cells and therefore regulate numerous processes, including cell growth and differentiation. The rat PDE4A5 isoform (human homolog PDE4A4) interacts with ...
Multi-chaperone function modulation and association with cytoskeletal proteins are key features of the function of AIP in the pituitary gland.
Despite the well-recognized role of loss-of-function mutations of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor interacting protein gene (AIP) predisposing to pituitary adenomas, the pituitary-specific function of this tumor suppressor ...
