    Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn Villa Comunale, 80121, Napoli, Italy
    Curr Opin Genet Dev 9:289-94. 1999
    ..This demonstrates, for the first time, the heritability of this condition. New genes responsible for thyroid dyshormonogenesis have also been discovered...

    M De Felice
    Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn, Napoli, Italy
    Nat Genet 19:395-8. 1998
    ..Thus, mutation of Titf2-/- results in neonatal hypothyroidism that shows similarity to thyroid dysgenesis in humans...

    P E Macchia

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:349-54. 2001
    ..This is an in vivo demonstration that a TR deficiency can enhance sensitivity to TH. This effect is likely due to the abrogation of the constitutive "silencing" effect of TRalpha2 in tissues expressing the TRbeta isoforms...
