  2. ncbi request reprint Heritable disorders of pituitary development
    J S Parks
    Department of Pediatrics, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia 30322, USA
    J Clin Endocrinol Metab 84:4362-70. 1999
    ..Homozygosity for inactivating mutations of HESX1 produces a complex phenotype that resembles septo-optic dysplasia. Much more needs to be learned about the role of HESX1 mutations in other forms of hypopituitarism...

    J S Parks
    Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA 30322, USA
    Growth Horm IGF Res 9:2-8; discussion 8-11. 1999
    ..Mutations in PROP1 or POU1F1, or their mouse homologous, result in severe hypopituitarism as well as morphological abnormalities of the pituitary gland...

    N M Oyesiku
    Department of Neurosurgery, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia 30322, USA
    J Clin Endocrinol Metab 82:4184-8. 1997
    ..No mutations were detected. We conclude that mutations in these regions of the G alpha q cDNA occur infrequently, if at all, in human pituitary adenomas. Alternative mechanisms underlying pituitary tumorigenesis should be explored...
