- Molecular genetics of congenital hypothyroidismP E Macchia
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...
- A mouse model for hereditary thyroid dysgenesis and cleft palateM 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...
- Increased sensitivity to thyroid hormone in mice with complete deficiency of thyroid hormone receptor alphaP E Macchia
Department of Medicine, University of Chicago, MC 3090, 5841 South Maryland Avenue, Chicago, IL 60637, USA
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...

Department of Science and Biomedical Technology, University of Udine, Italy
Cell Growth Differ 7:251-61. 1996....
- PAX8 mutations associated with congenital hypothyroidism caused by thyroid dysgenesisP E Macchia
Stazione Zoologica A Dohrn, Napoli, Italy
Nat Genet 19:83-6. 1998..These genetic alterations implicate PAX8 in the pathogenesis of TD and in normal thyroid development...
- Cloning, chromosomal localization and identification of polymorphisms in the human thyroid transcription factor 2 gene (TITF2)P E Macchia
Stazione Zoologica A Dohrn, Naples, Italy
Biochimie 81:433-40. 1999..The polymorphisms identified in this study can be used as markers to study the role of the TITF2 gene in other cases of thyroid dysgenesis, especially in familial cases...
