    Keywords : thyroid; congenital hypothyroidism; thyroid dysgenesis; cadherins; pharyngeal arch arteries; Shh; Tbx1;

    Abstract : Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is untreated a major cause of mental retardation. The majority of cases are due to malformations of the gland (dysgenesis). Little is known of molecular mechanisms regulating thyroid morphogenesis. READ MORE

    Keywords : thyroid; congenital hypothyroidism; dysgenesis; Tbx1; Shh; Isl1; Foxa2; C-cells;

    Abstract : Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) affects 1 in 3000 children and is the major cause of treatable mental retardation. Most cases are due to malformations of the gland, collectively named thyroid dysgenesis. The disease results from defective thyroid organogenesis during embryonic life. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular investigations on chromosome 21 in relation to Down syndrome and familial congenital hypothyroidism

    Author : Bodil Edman Ahlbom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Clinical Genetics; klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : Chromosomal abnormalities as well as mutations in single genes are genetic changes that can cause syndromes or inherited diseases. Down syndrome (DS), usually a consequence of trisomy 21, is a gene dosage disorder caused by an extra copy of genes on chromosome 21, but the mechanisms whereby specific genes contribute to the clinical features of DS are not known.
