Background: Growth retardation affects more than 80% of patients with Noonan syndrome (NS; MIM#163950), one of the most common developmental disorders, but its origin remains poorly understood. We have demonstrated that mutations of the tyrosine phosphatase SHP2, that are responsible for half the cases of NS, impair the systemic production of Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1), the biological mediator of GH acting on growth plate, through a hyperactivation of the Ras/Mitogen-...
