- Mutation and expression analysis of corticotropin-releasing factor 1 receptor in adrenocorticotropin-secreting pituitary adenomasK D Dieterich
Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Magdeburg University Hospital, Germany
J Clin Endocrinol Metab 83:3327-31. 1998..We suggest that the overexpression of the CRF1-R messenger RNA may be related to a disturbed receptor regulation in ACTH-secreting pituitary adenomas...
- Decreased expression of corticotropin-releasing factor-binding protein mRNA in ACTH-secreting pituitary adenomasK D Dieterich
Dept of Endocrinology and Metabolism Magdeburg University Hospital, Germany
Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes 108:59-62. 2000..We suggest that the decreased CRF-BP gene expression in ACTH-secreting pituitary adenomas is most likely an effect due to high cortisol levels in Cushing patients...
- Mutation analysis of leukemia inhibitory factor-receptor (LIF-R) in ACTH-secreting pituitary adenomasD Heutling
Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Otto von Guericke University, Magdeburg, Germany
Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes 112:458-61. 2004..No mutations have been found in the adenomas investigated. We thus conclude that mutations in LIF-R are an unlikely cause for the development of Cushing's disease...
