    ..Moreover, our genotype-phenotype functional correlation suggests that the C-terminal portion of the KRIT1 protein is likely to contain a short, previously unrecognized segment necessary for its activity. ..

    ..EZH2 and ZFX genes do not seem to have an impact on the onset of most parathyroid tumours, both benign and malignant, though further studies on larger cohorts of different ethnicity are needed. ..
