Objectives: Familial glucocorticoid deficiency (FGD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized with isolated glucocorticoid deficiency. Melanocortin receptor 2 (MC2R) mediates the functions of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) in the adrenal cortex. MC2R accessory protein (MRAP), a transmembrane protein, involves in the trafficking of MC2R to the cell surface. Mutations in MC2R and MRAP genes cause FGD type 1 and 2. Herein, we ev...
