Objective: To identify genetic mutations of a pedigree affected by severe short stature in Chinese populations for the first time.Methods: Auxological and endocrinological profiles were measured. Targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) analyses comprising 277 shorted stature-associated candidate genes and 19 related copy number variation (CNV) regions were used to identify gene mutations in the proband. Three web-based software programs (SIFT, PolyPhen...

The Role of IGF-1R Gene Polymorphisms with Regard to Susceptibility to Idiopathic Short Stature Risk in the Chinese Population of Jiangxi Area

Yang Yu , Huang Hui , Yu Zhen , Wang Wei , Yang Li , Huang Wei , Xie Liling

Background: Accumulated evidence indicates that the GH-IGF-1 pathway might be one of the crucial mechanisms of ISS. Insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) is the effector molecule that regulates the cascade reaction of hormone receptors in the GH–IGF-1 axis.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate the role of IGF-1R gene polymorphisms with regard to susceptibility to Idiopathic short stature risk in the Chinese population of Jiangxi area.</p...
