A Novel Nonsense Mutation in the WFS1 Gene Causes Wolfram Syndrome

Noorian Shahab , Savad Shahram , Mohamadshahi Davood

Background: Wolfram syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder caused by mutations in the WFS1 gene. The WFS1 gene is active in cells of body, with highly expression in the, brain, lungs, heart, inner ear, and pancreas. Within cells, WFS1 gene encodes wolframin protein that is located in a structure of endoplasmic reticulum. Endoplasmic reticulum has critical role in protein folding and material transportation within the cell o...

The pituitary gland is a pea-sized organ located at the base of the brain. It synthesizes, and secretes, many hormones that control growth and development, and the functioning of the other endocrine glands. Panhypopituitarism is a condition of inadequate or absent production of all these hormones. LHX3 (LIM Homeobox 3) is a Protein-Coding gene involved in pituitary development. Mutations in this gene may result in a deficiency of multiple pituitary hormones. Here, we present a...
